I am a friend of Rachel's here in Colorado and she talks a lot of John. He fought hard and is loved by so many. I am thinking of your entire family and of John. I am so sorry that he lost his battle with cancer. He will never be forgotten! I will join the fight against Neuroblastoma and will raise awareness and donate to one of the places you recommended in honor of John. Take care of each other. Sending thoughts and prayers.

I knew and loved Johnny through Pr. Hope. Oh how we became attached without meeting simply because Johnny was a bright shining light for Jesus. Our prayers for healing were answered by Johnny being healed in the Living Presence of Our Lird and Savior Jesus. May His love be with you all dear family and friends if Johnny...
