John Wims was a great man. I hadn't seen John in many years since I was a little girl. I do remember him coming in the bible bookstore where I worked and purchased a bible. I am glad to know he had faith in Jesus Christ, and I know that Jesus has a place for him to call home. I remember he was always the one cracking jokes. He was the life of the party. Such a fun man. God bless his wife and children.
