Darlene & Family,
So sorry to hear about John's passing, he was a great guy, had some great times together at Mark & Arlene's house, I fondly remember our trip to Green Bay for the Packers/Raiders game. You are all in my prayers.

Darlene and Family

I am so sorry for your loss. Matt is so lucky to have had John as his first boss.Whenever I visited the T.J. Maxx and John was there it was so evident that everyone there respected and loved him.

He was the kind of guy that 10 seconds after meeting him made you feel comfortable and had you laughing.

I remember times when Matt was in his room and he would bust out laughing and it would be because he was texting back and forth with John.

Not too many teenage kids want to spend there time away from work talking to their boss. That is a testament to the kind of guy John was.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Our lives are but fine weavings that God and we prepare --
Each life becomes a fabric planned and fashioned in His care.
We may not always eee ust how the weavings intertwine, but we must trust the Master's hand and follow His design.
For He can view the pattern upon the upper side, while we must look from underneath and trust in Him to guide..
Sometimes a strand of sorrow is added to His plan, and though it's difficult for us, We still must understand that it's He who fills the shuttle, It's He who knows what's best, so we must weave in patience and leave Him to the rest.
Not till the loom is silent and the shuttles cease to fly. Shall god unroll the canvas and explain the reason why -- The dark threads are as needed in the Weaver's skillful hand, as the threads of fold and silver in the pattern He has planned. Thinking of you at This Tragic Loss. Stacy, Patty and Bob Lazarz
Your family is in our prayers and those of our church. God bless and keep you. Our Stacy thought the world of John and will miss him.

Gone From My Sight
by Henry Van Dyke

I am standing by the seashore.
A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze
and starts for the blue ocean.
She is an object of beauty and strength,
and I stand and watch
until at last she hangs like a speck of white cloud
just where the sun and sky come down to mingle with each other.

Then someone at my side says, ‘There she goes!
Gone where? Gone from my sight – that is all.

She is just as large in mast and hull and spar
as she was when she left my side
and just as able to bear her load of living freight
to the places of destination.
Her diminished size is in me, not in her.

And just at the moment when someone at my side says,
‘There she goes! ‘ ,
there are other eyes watching her coming,
and other voices ready to take up the glad shout :
‘Here she comes!’

And that is dying.

We send all our prayers and thoughts to the Trendl family. John will be remembered as a fun loving and good man. It's been said that people don't remember what you say to them, but how you treat them. John treated people in a very kind way.

My condolences, I remember John from High School. He was a funny and cool guy. I'm sure he was a great dad and husband. We pray for your loss and heaven's gain.
