My favorite memory
was in 1962 when John walked my
5 year old self across the street to my home in the middle of the night. It was to be my 1st sleep over with Donna but I got homesick that quick. John held my hand while walking peacefully in the moonlit sky. I could feel his love and that is when we bonded. He was always calm and quiet while us kids raised cane. I loved him and thank God he was part of my life! May Jesus comfort the entire family!
Love in Christ, Renee Damphier
