To the Koontz family:
It was a great honor and privilege to look after John for the last remaining years of his life. My husband and he became like father and son as my husband cared for him and looked after him for several years before his going to be with Jesus. John was a loving Godly man who smiled all the time and showed everyone he came in contact with the love of Jesus Christ. He served His Lord and Savior well and he finished well. His smile always radiated the love of Christ and he was tender and kind. John was the most humble man that I have ever known and is a perfect example of not thinking more of ourselves than we ought. In site of 71 service to Jesus, he was simply "John" to everybody who knew him and oh, how he was loved. The virtues he displayed were virtues of the Lord Jesus and we are so thankful for having him in our lives.
May each of you be comforted in knowing that your Uncle john is with Jesus and he certainly is happy now. John wanted two things...to go to hospice before he died and then to graduate to heaven. God granted him both of these. John also suffered well. His reward is with Jesus.
we love you
Tom and Lois Wilson
I am so sorry for the loss of John. Although I did not know him personally, I hope you can gain comfort from a Scripture that always comforts me found at Isaiah 25:8. There we are promised by God by means of his dear Son that soon “he will swallow up death forever.”
