Dear friends,
It is with great sadness that I write to inform you of John's death.  He went very peacefully this afternoon with our family at his side.  Two days ago his kidneys began to fail and he was too fragile for dialysis.  This morning the ICU doctor told us that everything possible had been done, but we had lost the fight.
His funeral will be at Collierville UMC this Saturday, and there will also be a memorial service at Andrew Price, hopefully the next Saturday.  Times are as yet undecided.
Thank you so much for the many prayers you sent up for John...and for me.
We love you all,
Marilyn
