Dear Rhonda, Barry, Marty and the entire Moore family, The family of Marvin and (the late) Lucille Thames want to extend their sincerest sympathies at the loss of your dad, grandfather and great-grandfather. Our father, Marvin, wanted you to know that he dearly cherishes the many happy times he and our mother shared with both Johnny and Mildred. And we, their children, have warm memories of getting together with your entire family. Our dad recalled a wonderful trip to the NC mountains he and mom took with your parents when they were all newly married. Those times cemented a life-long friendship. When our mom talked about your parents, it was like they were family. And we know your parents felt the same way. While Marvin wishes he could be there for the service, his health won't allow it. But he wanted you to know how much he treasured his friendship with Johnny, and that you all are in our prayers at this difficult time. May God bless you and help you through this. Sincerely, Marvin and his children: Jim, Rick, Dan, Chuck and Joy.
Rick Thames

What an amazing man to have known. As a young lad, he was one of the first males in my life to talk to me about Jesus Christ. He only had one tone of voice, soft and approachable, positive about others and full of laughter. God changed many young peoples lives through this faithful servant. May God comfort the family during this difficult time.

I just heard of John's Home-Going late this afternoon. I wish I had known. Your father was a very, very special man and a great blessing to me through his friendship and his ministry at Brian Center/Eden....all those years of all those birthday cards for every resident AND staff member! But it wasn't just what he "did" for everyone...and he tried his best to do for everyone he met... it was his genuine heart and smile. You knew when you saw him, that it was real. The love he spoke of shined in his eyes when he talked of his Beloved Mildred and his children! John definitely left a foot print in my life memories!! I thank God that I was blessed and able to call him FRIEND! Sending each of you love, hugs and prayers!

I am so sorry for your loss. Mr. Moore was Granny Voss's mailman; waited for him to bring the mail many days.

My sincere sympathy to the family. May the words quoted from this beautiful song, based on Job 14:13-15, bring you a measure of comfort: "If a man should die, can he live again? Hear the promise God has made: He will call; the dead will answer. They shall live at his command. For he will have a longing for the work of his own hand. So have faith, and do not wonder, for our God can make us stand. And we shall live forever, as the work of his own hand." - Sing Out Joyfully, song: #151, "He Will Call". (John 5:28,29)
Cheryl D.
