John I want to thank you for the many memories we have shared from junior high until this very day. You will be truly missed by everyone. You were the life of the party and was always ready to have a good time. As Krysta said you lived life as if it was an adventure and to be honest you enjoyed every second and every minute of it. I'm so thankful to have gotten to know you over the years we've shared I couldn't have asked for a better friend. To Ms. Tiffany and the girls I pray for peace and understanding. I will always love you my love rest peacefully---Ralexis

To know John was to love John. Genuine, loving and comical. John is the only person I knew that would leave a room and his spirit/energy remains. Mrs. Tiffany, you've done an amazing job raising him and it showed daily. His spirit will forever live on and he is truly missed. I will continue to keep you all in my prayers. Rest peacefully love, love you always.

Mrs. Tiffany, Thank you for raising such a beautiful spirit. To know John was to know love. He had a way of making you feel accepted in any situation and excited about life in general. He treated life as an adventure. I loved the way he was always ready for the next move. Spontaneity, passion, and excitement were some of his greatest qualities. Our circle of friends will surely mourn the loss of such a sweet person, but ultimately, we rejoice in having had the pleasure of getting to know and love him. I'm praying for you and your family's strength during this trying time. Much love, Krysta
