I met John at the Lyndon United Methodist Church years ago, and like so many others, became aware of the very beautiful, rich voice he had. When he sang a song, his voice, plus the quiet feeling way he delivered it, could put his listener so much closer to God. I can only imagine how much the angels will enjoy it.

May God bless your family during this loss,
Sally Renkes
