FW: Prayer request for the family of John Kopp

Please pray for the family of John Kopp.  John passed away on Tuesday, June 11th.
John had valiantly battled cancer over the past few years; but he took a horrible fall last week and sustained several broken bones and a severe head injury.  I haven't talked to Dorothy, his wife, yet; but I'm guessing that fall is what got him to heaven quicker than the advancing cancer.
He was a very interesting man with a great sense of humor.  He had a great faith in his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and kept a very positive outlook throughout his illness.  He and Dorothy even kept on bowling and staying on the move.  Case in point - John took that fall as he was exiting a restaurant!  STILL on the go!  Looks like they will still have their family reunion this Saturday as planned - just in a different way; but still to celebrate John as a father.
