John and Sylvia Mensonides family treated all of us as a family with so many great memories on our visits and Lisa and Steve's wedding. Thank you for our beautiful daughter in law/sister in law Lisa in our lives. Thank you for treating Steven like a son. Thank you for the happiness that we see and hear with Lisa and Steven. We have you all in our thoughts and prayers.
We are sorry that we knew John for a short time, but honored to have met and known him.
Prayers. God bless you all.

Dearest Sylvia and family: Our hearts are heavy for you all with the passing of John. We know that he is with his Heavenly Father and so many other loved ones, but our hearts still ache. Living his life for his Heavenly Father was evident in John. I remember one conversation we had when the troubles of life were getting him down. John said "I do not want to disappoint My Heavenly Father in the way I handle this situation." This was so like John.
When John took on a task, he gave it 100%. He re-wired our utility trailer and it was the most beautiful electrical work of art that we had ever seen. He always wanted to give. It gave him so much pleasure to see someone else happy.
Those off colored comments that I would throw his way. His eyebrows would raise, he would get a twinkle in his eye, shake his head and the chuckle would slowly rumble out of him. Memories......we have them. Lots of them.
We pray that the remainder of your earthly journey without John will be filled with peace, love and grace. We are here for you all but most importantly the arms of God are wrapped tight around you all. God Bless you.
Love, hugs and prayers
