I will miss John Workman greatly. He was a good friend and neighbor. I Remember so many times that either he or he and Judy would come up to the house with a dish, they were always delicious and I wouId have to fight my son to get my fair share. I'll miss the corny hillbilly jokes and his positive outlook and love for life and people. Judy I am praying for you and your family and you know that we are just a few doors away from you.
