I was leaving condolences with you. I am so sorry for your loss, I know losing someone is very difficult. I was sharing a small hope in the Bible, found in Isaiah 25:8- He will swallow up death forever,And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces- What do you think about that? One day, death will be eliminated and you'll see them again. I am sorry for your loss.

Hi I'm Traci Sarria,When I met my husband Jerry 24 years ago, my life changed forever in a good way I had found my soulmate in Jerry but just 1 week later he introduced to John and we instantly clicked as if we had known each other for years, at that time I realized how lucky I was not only did I meet my soulmate my future husband Jerry but I also met my male twin anyone who knew John in past 24 years knew the special bond Jerry, John and I shared. John was my late night pal, my soulmate in a male friend, he was my brother, my confidant, but Jerry often called him my second husband. Yes, John was that guy,  the guy who had an instant impact on anyone he met He was a charmer, a good bullshiter, great debater an instant friend to many but to me he was honestly more than family to us and way more than an uncle to mine and Jerry’s kids, John was something to us I simply can't explain. John always referred to me as "Traci Lyn"  which is my first and middle name, there was just something he loved about the tone of it and power and laughter he put into calling me it as he always said it with a laugh and a smile and he was the only one that could call me by that name without me thinking I'm in trouble.

John was more than an amazing friend to me, not only did he make me laugh with his infectious laugh and make me smile with his amazing smile even when I didn’t want to smile, but he was also there to cry with me, he picked me up when life got me down, John was even there for my mom Sharon’s surgery just this past February and he prayed for her and with her, he also was on the phone with me daily during my surgery and recovery this past May, John knew everything about me there isn't anything he didn't know and he never judged me instead he always supported Jerry and I and our kids. John was known as “Uncle John” to our kids, but he was more than a GREAT Uncle to them he always refereed to them by their nicknames Steele the Stud, Babygirl Stephanya and little Peanut Stella. Everytime we talked he asked about the kids, he loved the kids very much like any uncle would. John was a HUGE IRREPLACEABLE part of our family. 24 years was not enough time for me 41 years was not enough time for Jerry. I selfishly want more time with him as we all do. Jerry, myself and our kids are very fortunate to have Tucker with us to carry on John’s memory. Tucker was not just a cat to John, Tucker was his son in every way, he loved Tucker unconditionally as we all love our children unconditionally I feel blessed to have Tucker and yes he is a daily reminder of John which is sometimes almost too painful but mostly a joy. Well I could stand up here and talk all day about how great John was but I'm looking forward to hearing the rest of you share your stories about our beloved Johnny so I will  I end my speech today with these few words in memory of John:

I THOUGHT OF YOU TODAY BUT THAT'S NOTHING NEW

I THOUGHT IF YOU YESTERDAY AND THE DAYS BEFORE THAT TOO

I THINK OF YOU IN SILENCE, I OFTEN SPEAK YOUR NAME
ALL I HAVE ARE MEMORIES AND MANY PICTURES OF YOU IN MY BRAIN

YOUR MEMORY IS NOW A KEEPSAKE
FROM WHICH I'LL NEVER PART

NOW GOD HAS YOU IN HIS ARMS
BUT I HAVE YOU IN MY HEART?

Until we meet again Johnny I love you!
