We met Mr. Whetstone while visiting Carolyn and Orpha several years ago.
Although we never got to know John we have become quite close to his
grand-daughter, Charolyn, her family. He must have been an outstanding
gentleman to have raised such a beautiful family that we have been so
fortunate to know. Our hearts and prayers are with those of you missing him.
Keep him with us by passing on something you admired in him...
With much love, Daniel, Lisa, and Brittany Hallett
John S. Whetstone
