  4. Mona Lisa Walker says:

    John C I am going to miss you. You were more my brother than a brother in law. You were in my family before I was. I always enjoyed listening to John and my Dad playing the guitar or banjo and especially the fiddle and singing their hearts out. I’m sure that the two of them are playing now at the feet of Jesus and having the time of their lives. You have certainly left and empty place in our lives but you will always be in our hearts and our memories. You will be missed very much but it won’t be long and we will all be back together again for one heck of a family reunion. Love you John C, in the Saviors arms now.
