I remember John as kind and softspoken with a sweet smile. He made Trysh happier than I’ve ever known her to be. He will be missed by all who knew him.

I work at Beach Hardware in Hampton and I met Mr. Sadler after receiving a flyer from him regarding his pet grave markers shortly after my parents dog died. I asked my boss if we could check out his work and immediately placed an order for 2 markers. Mr. Sadler was a kind and caring person and despite his health problems was always a pleasure to visit with. His presence will be missed greatly. My deepest sympathy to his family. God bless you. Love and Prayers,

My grandfather was the best grandfather anyone could have. Who else would have let me paint the wheelbarrow pink?!? His sweet tooth for chocolate was a glimpse into how sweet his heart was, and we will all love and miss him. I am proud of what he had accomplished in his life and I am thankful that he got a chance to see his great-grandson before he passed. Trysh, our thoughts and love are with you, don’t ever forget that, and although the miles may seperate us, we are still here for you too. Grandaddy is at peace now and suffers no more. He is with God, and there is no better place.

I’m so glad that I was able to make it to Virginia Beach last night to see you and the rest of the family. I will certainly try my hardest to talk to you more often… I know that I don’t do a very good job at that. Just know that I love you, and I hope to see you again sometime soon.

Whenever I talked to John on the phone or saw him at his home, he always made me laugh. More important than that, he was so loving, giving and thoughtful to his wife, my dear friend, Trysh.
