John, it's breaking my heart the relationship we had at the end. It really is bothering me but I can't do anything about that now. That's my guilt to carry. I'm sorry that you left this world so soon, you didn't deserve that. You really did have such a huge heart, maybe too big sometimes, but you always meant well. You will be missed my friend. Give bruce a hug for us and tell him about his beautiful granddaughter and grandson. Until we meet again John. Much Love, Jackie

Seemed like a bad nightmare when I heard you passed,but last time I saw you it was obvious you were struggling with life here. I will definitely miss our crazy group chats with my sister, Beasley,& Linda who just stared at the corner of her screen lol. You made us all laugh endless laughs with your quick comebacks, you’re definitely one of a kind “Sargent Howard” (inside joke) You can now rest easy up there. Miss and love ya John💛💛💛
