Dear family of John. We met John at Ozark Full Gospel Church and instantly placed him in our heart because it was easy to see he was one of the kindest, nicest, loving , peaceful people to know. That little twinkle in his eyes and unique smile is unforgetable. We only knew him a few years but he will be missed. Peace to you all. Darrell and Nemra Rhoden
