" friend, a son, a brother. No matter who you were john was willing to make friends with you no matter what. he had a personality everyone wish they had. athletic,funny,talented, just an all around good kid. Waking up every morning knowing that i will have to go through the day without seeing you is the hardest thing i think i have ever had to over come. It's been a year pal but your still fresh in my mind, boy you know we all love ya. <33 09-5-2006 =[

I hung out with john almost every day..I miss him alot and wish he was still here..we were always hanging with dylan,tyler,and brianna,and nick and he is really magical because after his his viewing we were all sitting in my yard and we were prying for him and he must have heard us because we saw his name written backwards in the sky and it was amazing to know that he was really still with us.... But i send lots of love to his mom,and his dad they were always sweet when i came over to they house to hang out...
love alanah karos

I remember going to middle school with this guy. I used to sit at the lunch table and talk with him. He was an all around good person. and to this day i still remember him. i drive past the site every day and look at it. He was a good friend.

John words cannot describe how much you have impacted my life. You and I were pretty good friends for a while, I remember you and I talking during Ms. wicks math class. You had a great sense of humor. I always enjoyed playing you in baseball, you always gave all you had. You have given me strength to stand up for what I believe in and to pursue my dreams. You are the reason I am able to start my organization. God bless you my friend.

Going to a new school in a new area where I didn't know many people, John and I, for whatever reason that I can no longer recall, didn't get along so well for the first month or so of school when I first came to know him, considering he was in a few of my classes. However, one thing I'll never forget, that was so very eerie, was one Friday he came up to me and told me, "Hey, do you wanna just forget all of this and start fresh?" I told him "sure", we shook hands and he became one of the first friends I made. Well, that Friday was the last day I saw him, because one weekend later I arrived at school, and found out that he had passed away only the day before. Seven years later it still haunts me as I wonder why on that day he had such a sudden change of heart.
