|Barbara, I just saw the local obituaries and read
about John. I just talked with him at Hardee's a
short time ago. We talked about how you and he
gave me the baby bed when my son was born
(yes...over 40 years ago). You and John were such
a great source of encouragement and I appreciated
that so much. Sending you prayers for peace and

|My Mom, sister and I lived next door to the Webb
family for many years (us kids grew up together).
I remember the time John took us for a ride in an
old hurse he had bought. I recall going bowling
with him and Barbara - he sure tried to teach me
how to bowl. He always stayed busy and smiled a
lot. I am so sorry to hear of his passing and pray
God will bless the entire family.|

|John was a sweet man and we have many happy memories of him at Paint n' More. I can still see him sitting at the table with my dad cutting up. He was full of life and will be missed.

|I have known John since 1984 and considered him
a true and close friend. He and I spent a lot
of time together, went fishing together, and I
bought a lot of stuff off of him at the paint
store. He was a kind and caring man. I loved
John, and I will truly miss him. My heart goes
out to his family during this difficult time,
but we all know that John is in a better place
- much better than we are. I know that God
welcomed John home and now he is watching us
from heaven. You will be greatly missed by me,
John. I will always remember your words of
wisdom. I remember all of the times you talked
to me about business and investing in property
and good insurance...I learned a lot from you.
I miss the times we went fishing, such as the
night that we lost the new trolling motor on
the lake, stranded for an hour or so. I'll
always remember what you told me about how you
felt spiritually - that is one thing that I
have never forgotten. You told me we would be
like bumblebees or butterflies soaring through
the air, smelling the flowers, and then you
would always say "we will marvel and gaze at
His wonders". I will never forget you John.
You were so much a part of my life for many
years and kept me out of trouble. I remember
when you first bought them "heeled" cowboy
boots - made you two inches taller. I always
kidded you about wearing "high heels". I
remember the poetry and poems that you showed
me over the years. I remember you wanting to
write a book and I think with everything you've
left behind and the people that you touched, a
book could be written. I remember the countless
times you spent in Helen, GA - one of our
favorite places - going innertube ridiing on
the Chatahoochie. I remember all the times we
went and bought cars at car auctions and sold
them, just as a fun hobby. Remember having them
soup beans and cornbread that you always liked
at the sale. I remember all the jokes you used
to tell. There is so much that I would like to
tell you, John, and your family. John loved his
"little China doll" (Barbara). He loved her
dearly. His brother, Randy, and sister, Linda,
and his sweet niece - he loved them as well and
talked about them all of the time and the fun
they had together. I could talk about John
forever and a day and want to talk more about
him, but this was just a little bit of what
John meant to me and what I remember about him
that I wanted to share with those who will miss
him also. All my love to you, John. I wil
miss you, but I will see you again one of these
days. Everytime I see a butterfly or bumblebee,
I will think about you. My prayers and
thoughts are with John's family. May God give
you peace and comfort during this time.
Your true friend,
Keith Scott Holly
