“To live in hearts we leave behind, is not to die.” – Thomas Campbell

John will always live in our hearts.

But our commonwealth is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will change our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power which enables him even to subject all things to himself. -Philippians 3:20-21
