  1. John was my godson. I saw John last at his own father\’s funeral in September. Our last words to one another were that we loved one other. I am grateful that I have those beautiful sentiments to sustain me. John will always be remembered and loved by me. He was very special to me. I will miss him but I also know by faith that he is in heaven with his mother and father.
