He was ‘John’ to us.
My husband was faithful to the Lord. He read the Word each day and was a Trustee at our church. He was a dedicated father and family man to his sons Matthew and Gregory. He was the best husband and friend a wife could have been blessed to share her life with these past 18 years. There was nothing John could not do and he did everything to perfection. He was my hero long before the nation called him one. A tremendous hole has been left in our lives‚ but John would want us to continue to live our lives in a God honoring way thereby continuing his legacy.
John read ‘Daniel 3’ from the Scriptures that fateful day. It is significant because it is about three men who are thrown into a fiery furnace‚ but four men are seen in the furnace. The fourth person is God. We know that God was with him and took him to be with Him for eternity‚ and one day we will be united again.
I found the following verse in his wallet: ‘The Lord is good‚ a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in Him.’ (Nahum 1:7)
