    Praying for the Waller family! They don't make men like they did in the 30's & 40's - hardworking, great men. Love the Waller family. A big part of my childhood. JG helped me get my 1st job in Richmond with Dominion Bank. I was very thankful.

    We thank you uncle JG for all you have done for all of our family, we love you , we miss you .. but we know as hard as it is you are in a much better place in peace. Tell dad I said hey and I miss him, tell aunt Kathryn I miss her food and her ear muffs 😊. Thank you for letting me go thru your Where's Waldo books when dad and I visited you so I would stay out of trouble lol, I enjoyed that so much! Such a soft but firm man and I see now it's just a Waller thing. We will carry that strong and till we meet again keep them straight up there. We love you and miss you all.. Love Rusty Waller and family.

    John was a man that you looked up to and tried to be like. He was fun and uplifting to be with and hardworking in whatever he did. He was a special part of Kenbridge United Methodist and Lunenburg Twilight Golf. He is missed. Nancy and Bagley
