Memories Timeline


  1. To: Troy Shreves, Kristi Kinger, Neda Burk, Sarah Shreves, grandparents, and extended family. I offer you my deepest and heartfelt sympathy at the tragic loss of your son, your brother, your grandson, and your relative. I would personally deliver my sympathy except that I live in Georgia.

    I knew John principally through Troy Shreves. My son, James Williams (b: Feb 1985), was on Troy’s baseball team when James was 11. Kristi would remember me as the one who took Troy to the hospital when Troy crashed into the light pole and suffered a concussion while at practice one day.

    What I remember about John was a 10 year old boy, who along with his sister, tagged along with his dad to baseball games that Troy coached. John was polite and cheerful. Both he and his sister both loved to tag along with Troy.

    May the shining light of our Lord Jesus comfort you all at this dark hour in your grief.

    Asa J Williams

  2. My condolences to Troy, Ashley and the rest of the Shreves family. Our hearts are broken into many pieces as we try to comprehend this whole thing. I wish we were not so far away so we could comfort you with more than just words. May the love of God and memories of Ross help you heal your hearts.
