Condolences to Linda and family. Linda I used to walk my black lab by your house for years and quite often would chat to John. We saw both you and John early last summer walking along Bragg Road. RIP John

Dearest Linda
So sorry to hear of John's passing. I have fond memories of when you and John visited at mom and dad's in Lynden while mom(Alma Stevenson Gibbs) was still alive. I remember the laughter, giggling and good times. I know that even though John may have left this realm he is one of God's chosen and we will meet again. Much love Shelley

Aunt Linda, I was so saddened to hear of Uncle John’s passing. I wish I was closer to be able to attend his service but please know that you are in my thoughts during this incredibly difficult time. Uncle John was always so good natured and loving and he touched many lives with his kindness. He is dearly missed. Xo Amy
