  3. John… where do I even start! I was probably was no more than 12 whenever I met you over at Tina’s while babysitting Robin Josh and Matt and we’ve been kicking it ever since. You never saw or talked to me without saying that you love me and I knew you it. I Love You Bub!!! You taught me how to survive these skreets, we used to find out wherever you were working and go to your job and bug you like all the time! You never told us not to and always came off the roof to hang out with us. If we were stranded in Iron City or Panama City you would drive to get us and never complain or chastise us. The only thing that you stayed on us about was LOVING THE GOOD LORD UP ABOVE! Delores used to laugh so much whenever you came over there and Jerome thought the absolute world of you! Delores used to tell you she could see the wild in your eyes (she could see it because it was in hers too!) You were not meant to be tamed and we loved you just as wild as they came!!!! Anytime we talked time stopped and just the good memories of us living wild and free came through. You always talked about Shyla and how proud you were of her and how absolutely beautiful she is! You loved The Lord and You’re family and you always made sure I knew I was your family… I don’t think I will ever meet another like you. Ever! It’s so hard to say goodbye but I will cherish your presence in my life for ever John McGee! You put the McGee in McGee Town! You are so missed here in this realm! To the entire McGee Family, I Love Y’all all and My Deepest Condolences to each and everyone of you during this difficult time of bereavement.

  4. My thoughts and prayers are with each and everyone of you. I know we aren’t all close but it hurts me every time one of us leaves this earth. Hang in there guys John will be just fine where he went because he really did love the lord. If anyone needs to talk I’m always available to listen. I can give Tina my number and she can give it to as many of y’all who wants it. I’m sorry I wasn’t closer to you guys growing up, I regret that so much.
