Over the last 3 days, I have struggled to find the proper words to honor John. I still don't know what to say.

I'll just say that I always admired the way he coached the Hickory soccer teams when my son played for him.

I remember thinking how lucky we were to have a him not only coaching, but also being a superb positive influence for our youth.

I remember how he came to Virginia Wesleyan to see some of the kids he coached in high school and how happy they were to see him. You could see the respect those kids had for him.

I also remember thinking what a wonderful choice for when I heard he had been appointed as one of the Assistant Principals at Hugo Owens. I'm sure he served as a positive role model and mentor for no telling how many kids in that role.

I suppose that with the passage of time the sting of losing John will diminish . . . but I'll always remember him . . . and I'll be thankful that I had the honor of having known him.

My sincerest condolences to the family. May God comfort you.
