Let me be a little kinder
Let me be a little blinder
To the faults of those about.
Let me praise a little more.
Let me be when I am weary,
Just a bit more cheery,
Let me serve a little better
The God that I adore.
Let me be a little meeker
With the brother who is weak
Let me strive a little harder
To be all that I should be.
Let me be more understanding,
And a little less demanding,
Let me be the sort of friend
That You have always been to me.

To Kaye and family, memories of John also reminds me of my own late father when both of them would car pool to Studebaker in his small Volkswagon. How he ever fit into that car always amazed me. He will be sadly missed.

My deepest condolences to Aunt Kaye, John Paul, Lori, Peter, Ann, Joe, Gail and your families for the loss of your husband/Dad.
Gail and Joe, I sent my heart felt condolences to you and your family for the loss of your Dad/Father-in-law.

Living right across the road, Uncle John was my second Dad. Beneath that loud voice was a gentle giant who gave the best bear hugs. Growing up I was sure he was a relative of the Jolly Green Giant, as I had never seen a man sooo tall, with such large hands and feet! As a kid I did not always appreciate having a second Dad, as it was hard to get away with any mischief! But I grew to realize what a precious and loving man Uncle John was. It always made me smile to hear him introduce us as "these are my girls". I will miss him and those wonderful bear hugs.
Love Charlene
