    You are so loved, sir. You will be greatly missed but those of us who love you know you are rejoicing with your sweet wife and most importantly with Jesus.

    John meant a lot to my mother Frances Stinson Dennis. She spent a lot of her time growing up at Dorothy and John’s house. They both were a great influence in her life. My mom is the only charter member of Goodlettsville Naz still living. May God comfort this family in the days ahead.

    Mr. Carpenter was a great man. He is the man who led me to Christ. I have always thought of him whether I was in Vietnam other states I have lived in or home. He will be missed by many people.

    Mr. Carpenter was a man of impeccable integrity and demonstrated how to live like Christ in a difficult world. At an early age, I was deeply affected by his godly example of Christian living. As a “rookie “ minister he encouraged God’s calling in my journey by his support and fellowship. When returning home to visit and worship at Goodlettsville Church of the Nazarene, I looked forward to seeing this great, precious, faithful man of God. Brother John Carpenter (and Dorothy) will always be held dear to our hearts. God’s eternal home has gained a trophy of grace and we are left with a great hope of our future destination.
