A Very Difficult Post

Posted by Country Express on Saturday, November 27, 2010,
This is a most difficult post to relay to our friends and followers. I was notified this morning (Friday) that John passed away last night at home.  His daughter was by his side. We certainly were not expecting this so quickly. We are all absolutely devastated. A memorial service in his honor will be conducted at the Miller Funeral Home, Broadway Street in Rockwood November 30th (Tuesday) at 11:00 A.M.  Please keep his family in your Prayers.
