John and Nancy were our first neighbors when we moved to Kentucky. They always showed us so much love and friendship. John always had a smile on his face. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him. Thinking of you Nancy and your whole family and all of John's friends. May our wonderful memories of John give comfort during this difficult time.
