No words can express my condolences to John's family. John will be truly missed!!! He definitely had a gift like no other that touched so many in numerous ways, foremost in his "directing skills". Boyz n the Hood is more than just a masterpiece it is indescribable genius! As you remember your dear loved one, never underestimate the power of prayer and from the God of all comfort. May God strengthen the family and know that he keeps in his memory all those who die because they are precious in his eyes (Psalms 116:15).
