    For the last 4years, I have been living the life we all dream of. Every day filled with laughter and love from a most amazing man. God so blessed me to place John in my life just before our family was to face another devastating loss. He helped me carry this burden and was my strength every day. He was the kindest, most gentle man I have ever met. Thank you God for taking him home so peacefully.

    John was like a father, probably a second father in my life growing up. If I wasn't at the Tveitnes house, then Kammi was at my house. He was a gentle, loving person and always was direct and firm with our discussions. He helped us when we struggled with job loss when Rick and I were really young. He never judged us for being so young and getting married and having a family. He and Be a were always very supportive. He had a great laugh and smile. I know that Kammi and Kerri are always going to have happy, loving thoughts of their Dad. A true good man. Our Love and Prayers to all the family.
