so hard to believe it will be 3yrs tomarrow when my world come crashing down . Some days I get so upset with you for leaving us like you did . I now know that God takes only the best of the best for a reason its just hard . When you love someone so much and not even be able to say our good bye's and to tell you how much I loved You . I now realize how much you loved us by all the little things you did for us that we never knew until now days when ur not here . Altough some days I feel your presence around us . I miss you so much I still cry for you . Some days I feel so lost . I'm tring to move on but just cant' let go of you . When you died I lost my best friend , my husband... Always remember I will love you forever............................

Hey Big John, it goes close to that time of year again, when you left us for better farming up above. So once again I come here to remember & release my thoughts. I have been keeping an eye on the family for you from a distnace---those boys have each grown another foot this past year. I know your not bein here is hard on them...& all their restlessness & anger lands on their Mom's shoulders. She is still working lots of hours to make ends meet--hope the boys are pitching in. You & I both know that growing up is not easy & it takes time to be adults----but it is a hard on all of them. You remember how anxious were we to conquer the world--it took alot of hard work, sweat & tears to get started farming. It sure di not did not come on a silver platter or was it given to us. You had to work hard to earn every bit & take all the advice you can get from everybody--then decide what to do. yeah, we fell on our faces lots a times too. You would be so proud to know that their small machinery toys have really sparked the interest of others--they even were part of a show in Mankato---but then you know that --you were there. I know how you are looking forward to the last high school graduation this year. Just wanted to put in writng my thoughts & let ya know I sure do miss ya big guy.

Well, that time is drawing near again---guess this is where I come to remember, miss and grieve. In a few dayes Ole Buddy, it will be two years-long years. There have been a bunch of folks that have travel up ther to be with you. Had to go to town to get cards for some. Found these words on this here one that smacked me in the head --so had to hang on to this card....Dam Big John think I am getting soft but heres what the card said---- A BETTER PLACE theres a place I've never seen beyond this world we know, a palce I've only heard about but hope someday to go___It's not on any map, there are no roads to take me there. But its a place of perfect peace where hearts are free from care. And I understand thatsome may be saddened when I leave, One day, we will all meet again__ that's what I belive... When its time to travel there, I think I will wear a smile, I'l say goodbye to those i love, but only for a little while. Knowing there are others who have traveled there ahead and cannot wait to greet me and to whisper "welcome home." Remember Big John,you're still missed alot, well I'll try to hold it together for awhile again now.

John come out to our orchard every year and bought Fireside and Connell Red apples from us. You knew you were going to get some spirited conversation about cattle and farming out of the deal and it wasn't going to be short. He loved what he did and we really enjoyed talking to him. He knew alot about cows and I picked his brain many times. He sold us some really great hay and some really tasty beef. He will really be missed by a lot of people. Our condolences to all of you.

Jodi,Joshua,& Jared may you know that you are in thoughts & prayers of a vast number number of people. You were so very lucky to be a family strongly united in love & faith. Let that faith, love & strength carry you through the days ahead. You have so very many precious memories of family trips, family outings on the 4-wheelers, working on restoring machinery, holidays,family parties, working together as a team and many more. Remember this: "The Angels are always near to those who are grieving to whisper to them that their LOVED ONES are safe in the hands of GOD." May God be with you, & all the rest of the Golombeski & Schultz Families. I will do my best to be there to help out as John was there to help me so many years ago.

John will be sadly missed by the entire Peace family. His contributions to his church cannot be numbered. Not having his opinions and advice as he served on the board of trustees will most certainly leave a void. We rejoice that he is with the Lord but as humans we are deeply saddened by his passing. We can all take a lesson from this by holding those dear to us in the highest honor. Jodi, Josh and Jared-we pray for your comfort. Turn to God. You won't understand "why" this happened but let His love and peace comfort you. In our prayers, Rick, Lisa and Jacob Karsten

My favorite memories are when we use to go 4 wheeling are trip to Las Vegas and then his birhday party ~ We were blessed to have him as a friend. The relationship he had with his wife is a perfect example of the way a marriage should be. My heart, prayers and thoughts go out to Jo, Josh & Jared! John is a star in the sky shinning bright over all of us and he is in God's hands now. Just remember that his family was the most important thing to him. R.I.P John we will miss you always.
