I knew “JP” when we were younger, his heart was so sweet his thoughts genuine. Remember John’s laughter, remember John’s hands always reaching to help someone, remember how JP would remove his glasses to show you his blue eyes when he really wanted you to listen and believe what he was sharing with you. John loved his family very much and to his family, I wish I could take the hurt from you, remember your happy times with John. “JP” and I had many discussions about the Bible…so this is for you “Blue Eyes”…
John 14: 1-4
“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. “In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. “And where I go you know, and the way you know.”

Over the years I would encounter John, (who went to school with my brother John.) He always had a smile and time to chat, and ask about our family. Old St. Charles connections.
Sincere sympathy from the Carter family.
