Although no words can really help to ease the loss you bear in this moment, just know that you Randy and Tim are very close to me as my co-workers and most of all my cousin's. I'd like to reach out to you and, tell you both that I love you boys very much. There's no words that can even come close to describing the pain you're experiencing but, I want you to know that God is a comforting God and, He will help you come through this day by day. It's my duty to lift you and the rest of the family up in every thought and prayer and I will do that for you all. I really praised John L. for his dedication and unwavering faith he had for the Lord. I will continue to be encouraged by the life he lived for the Lord and I will always be humbled by his life as a child of God, ALWAYS I mean, it's sealed up in my heart as a memory I will never forget. I can always remember over thirty years ago when I was just a young little boy we would go with papaw (Ken) and mamaw (Ollie) Short to church there at the Church Of The Living God. You could always count on John L. and Dolores being there playing music and singing the songs of Zion. He would always be strumming his Guitar and She was always sitting there working her Accordion. I will never forget it, I will forever hold to it and, it will always be a part of my life. My greatest love and prayers go out to the family during this time. John L. I will miss you as you're already dancing on the streets of gold with friends and family already gone on as well. Kelvin Price I'll Fly Away Some glad morning when this life is o'er,  I'll fly away;  To a home on God's celestial shore,  I'll fly away.  I'll fly away, Oh Glory  I'll fly away; (in the morning)  When I die, Hallelujah, by and by,  I'll fly away.  When the shadows of this life have gone,  I'll fly away;  Like a bird from prison bars has flown,  I'll fly away.  Just a few more weary days and then,  I'll fly away;  To a land where joy shall never end,  I'll fly away. If there is anything I can do, Randy or Tim let me know. 276-202-5520

We have been so fortunate to have had John in our family. He always had a smile for everyone even when I know he didn't feel like it sometimes. We can only wish that we could be half as good as he was. He will be missed. Prayers and love for all the family.

The sweetest, most humble man I ever knew was John L. Street. I was so glad to have him as my uncle as long as I did. He will be missed dearly. My prayers go out to everyone who will feel this great loss.
