John David

on May 24, 2015











John passed away last night, peacefully at home with Katrina. He was an extraordinary man. So full of life and SO MANY STORIES. And I am beyond blessed that I was his niece. I thank you for all of your love and support, prayers and well wishes.
Here is a YouTube video from my visit in March:

John David, Uncle Johnny, Rocket John, Johnny Friendly, Mountain John… Thank you for so many smiles, and so many laughs!!
