Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most. See "Background" entry in Journal section (near bottom) for details of Johns current illness.
John has lived such an interesting life. He graduated from Shelby High School and then went on to graduate from Wake Forest University with a degree in History. He then went to live in Guadalajara Mexico for about 7 years working at a small school. He has traveled all over the world and sailed some of the most exciting seas! He has made very close friends everywhere he has lived. Johnny left Florida about 2 years ago to come and live in Shelby. He has been very busy helping Julia at the farm, helping mom and aunt Marge and volunteering at the Kings Mountain Arts Council. He has lots of friends in Shelby and has really enjoyed his LLBean addition Subaru Forrester
Please send John your prayers and positive energy with the hope that he can recover and continue his journey.
