My Heart is broken! John was such a sweet, loving, caring and funny man! He had been on my mind for the past month and I sure wish that I would have been able to reach him! I will miss the songs (Burning Bridges and To get to you) that we both loved and danced to...John would speak of his lovely wife and how much they loved dancing to those songs. He sure missed his Wife and now, they are joined together again. John would always bring me beef sticks at the VFW and make sure that I was taken care of...such a sweet soul! I will cherish all of the great times and memories that we shared! RIP my Friend!
My Heart, thoughts and Prayers goes out to John Jr. and the entire Plott Family. May Peace be with you and the Memories of John, always bring you comfort!
