Celebrating the life of John D. Swindell
Thank you for signing John D. Swindell's Guestbook
Johnny was a very close friend and my roommate during our days at NC State. The times and memories we shared will always be very special to me even though our lives grew apart in different geographical directions after graduation. I was so saddened to learn of his passing from Dr. Larry Cooper this weekend. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends. God bless!

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Johnnie. Johnnie had a sense of humor like your Mom and Uncle Vernon. Always smiling and made you smile as well. My thoughts are with each of you during the difficult time.
