    The fondest memory I have of John is when we, along with our youth leaders at the time (the wonderful couple who ended up being his father, and, mother in law), praying in a move of God that started with the youth, and, spread through the whole church. It lasted two, or, three years. That revival marked my life forever. I love you my brother, and, I’ll see you soon.
