  • Back in the early 2000s he stopped in at the Walmart in Hazlehurst MS and went to the radio grill there inside the store. I was looking down trying to get money out of my pocket when I heard him place his order and knew that voice instantly. I was right behind him and remembering how tall he is and I tried so hard to peak around the side to get a better glimpse of him but failed. I didn't want to look crazy. I never said anything to him because I respected his privacy. I wanted to tell him I really enjoyed watching him every week on Rosanne. I would pretend he was my dad. He was the coolest to me. Always loved his sense of humor on that show. He left an impression on me and I wanted to thank him for that. I watched as the people in the store recognized him and surrounded him. They followed him all the way to his white suburban with a Louisiana license plate without causing a scene. It was crazy. I just couldn't do that to someone. Anyway Thank You John for being a good dad and role model back then. We ❤️ you! Who knows now might see him in Muscle Shoals AL one day.

  • One of the greatest line s John ever spoke was in the Monuments Men. Matt Damon telling the men they should clear out after he stepped on landmine. John Goodman. I'm ok where I am. The sincerity of that line was so John goodman.
