I am truly sorry to hear of John's illness and passing. It is a heartache like no other to miss a dad. I know he had talked to my dad earlier this year about going deep sea fishing again, I'm sure they will enjoy each others company in the arms of God.
My prayers are with you all, much love- Cassandra

To the Mobley Family, My son and I had the pleasure to speak with Mr. John back in the summer. He was very interesting and showed a love for his horses. His words stuck in my mind when he said...."there isn't an ugly horse in this pasture". "No Mr. John there isn't," I said. He was right. He will be greatly missed.

Jan and David Hallman, Josh and Robert

Dear Mary Lynn
I have been trying to get in touch with you and Johnny for almost a year. I am so sorry that I only found you in this way. Words cannot express my saddness for the loss of the boy and man you loved for so many years. I still see him on his beautiful gray mare and later driving teams of beautiful draft horses. Please call or email me so that we can talk or visit in person.

I'll always remember the many trails we rode together.

Love,
Paula
