My condolences. John was certainly one of a kind and
a great friend. A man who will be remembered for being happy to do anything, for anybody at anytime.
My family and I had the pleasure of meeting John at the West
VA Sheep Sale 3 years ago. He was very supportive and offered advice to a young couple trying to get started in his
business. We will miss seeing him at all the sales and functions we attend. Please know that we are praying for
his family during this hard time.
Our prayers are with your family in this hard time
and will continue to think of you. What a shock to hear, he will be missed!
