To The Parton Family,

John was a member of our Church, Temple Baptist Church in Benton,Ar for a few years. He was a dear man who truly loved the Lord and the members of our Church. He kept us laughing at our fellowship meals, he was so friendly to all of us and always spoke to visitors who came to our Church. We were sad when he moved, we knew we were going to miss him. We tried to keep in touch by phone and cards. God Bless Each of you and asking the Lord to be with you in a mighty special way! He is with the Lord who he Praised and sang about.

Love and Prayers,
Bro. Ivy and Brenda Ellis
Pastor of Temple Baptist and Pastors Wife
