    My heart goes out to Cyndi and all the family and friends of John Wirman. Having lost my own 81 year old father less than a year ago, I at least know some of the grief and pain you are feeling. I saw my father going downhill rapidly and knew in my heart that his final day was coming. I thought I was prepared for it but I now know that you could never be prepared for that moment. Even though they have lived a good, long life and your mind knows it’s time to let them go, your heart never can be convinced of that. I hope your grief can soon be replaced by the memories of the love you shared together during his time on earth. You will find that the pain never disappears completely, but it does lessen with time. My sincere sympathy to you all.

    I would like to extend my sincere sympathy to the Family with the recent unexpected passing of John. I am reflecting on this man that I met for the first time almost 12 years ago, How I met John is through my wonderful caring Mother Dorothy Smith. You see John and my Mother began seeing each other and through this relationship I came to know this man. Early on, during the blossoming of their relationship I was not able to spend that much time with him as my job responsibilities kept me away on travel. As time went by and my job commitments changed we could spend more time together. I recall that I would stop by the house in Stafford on my way to my home from work and my mother would be making a wonderful dinner often times I would stay and enjoy a meal with him and my Mother. During these times, we talked about all sorts of things from past jobs, life experiences, fishing, and a whole host of things. As times seemed to fly by looking back on them now. I can remember spending some of our family vacations together down at the Outer Banks in North Carolina, numerous gatherings, birthday celebrations; to include a few intimate dinners at our house with my wife Delores. As the years went by I witnessed my mother’s overwhelming commitment as John’s life’s companion as well as his commitment as my Mom’s life’s companion as John truly Loved and adored my Mother. I learned for his Love of swimming, he and my mother were members at the YMCA and enjoyed their almost daily swimming sessions. John would go with my mother to the church to help with the food bank. I am reflecting on a lot of memories and conversations with John throughout the years. Through this I learned of his genuine concern and generosity towards a whole host of people. I remember a time when John was clearing some of his property and ask me if I wanted to come over to cut some trees as it would help him out and I could have some free wood. I said sure and came over and as it was I ended up cutting more wood then my truck could hold. My intent was to come back later to get what was remaining. When I returned to get the remaining wood, it was no longer there and upon John finding this out he insisted that I take money for my troubles. This was the type of Man that John was and I am Thankful that he and my Mother met and feel blessed by being afforded the opportunity of getting to know him. I hope to meet again someday on the other side.
    Rest in Peace my Friend.

    My sympathy and prayers go out to the Wirman family, neighbors, and friends. I didn’t know John personally but had heard of him over the years and what a nice person he was. When I saw the rescue squad heading down toward his house the other afternoon, I prayed that John was ok. Sadly, for the family and his friends, it was for him and he is now in heaven with the Lord. Rest in peace.

    Deepest Sympathy and Prayers to my Mother in Law, Dottie Smith ( John’s Companion for the past 12 yrs) And his family and friends. John Was a Good Man! Dottie and John made many great memories along the way. I always remember his smile,the great conversations, his Big Bear Hugs and his Love for Dottie! We had lots of family gatherings that Dottie and John came to and enjoyed together, We all went on the cruise together! That was lots of fun! I can see John now in his, Hawaiian shirt. Dottie and John were there for my Daughter, Candice’s wedding. So Many Memories……..I know this is so hard on Dottie and she is Lost without John. It happened so suddenly. I know that she Loved and adored John and He loved and Adored her as well. We Will Miss you John! Rest In Peace, until we meet again…

    I am so sorry for your loss and for certain no one would ever be able to replace John; he was a wonderful man and a very good friend of our family. May you remember the good times and look back on the years of having a loving father. John will always have a place in my memory bank, I can still hear him “telling” it like it was 😄

    I am so sorry, Dottie, for your loss. I those these past few years have been rough ones, but your encouragement of John to continue exercising and enjoying life was awesome. May he Rest In Peace. While I never met his daughters, I am sure their grief is as great as yours. Blessings.
