Hi everyone. I've never posted on here before, but I registered so I could leave you all this. My name is Joanna. I am John's daughter. As you can imagine, the past few days have been very difficult for all of us. My daddy was an amazing man. He was very kind and always tried to make everyone smile. He had incredible faith in God. He had also accomplished innumerous things in his life. And you can all tell that he was strong, fighting for two years.
I came here to thank you. All of us appreciate the condolences that have been sent out to us; my mother, my brothers, and all of my dad's family. There was a sort of comfort I received from reading all of your posts. Really, we can't say thank you enough for your comments and for your donations.
God bless you all.
You might be gone, but you're not forgotten. We'll always love you, Daddy.

Thank you Joanna. I was hoping that we'd have word from someone close to John, if only to let us know that you know how many people cared about your father. God bless you and your family during these difficult times. John always spoke very highly of you all, so he was blessed to have you fighting right along side him. Best wishes to you all.

That was very touching to read, and I thank you for sharing it with us. I admire the strength of the entire Tenta family, I can't imagine how you guys must feel, and I want to make sure you know how much your father, John, meant to all of us as well. Just from the few times I chatted with him on this board, I could tell his heart and inner strength would even outweigh his monsterous Earthquake persona, and thats no easy feat! I wish you and your family and friends nothing but the best.

I too just want to say that John Tenta was one in a million, a true great man, a wonderful human being and I was proud to have known him for the short time that I did. Thank you so much for sharing him with us and allowing us to get know somebody who had such a positive impact on everyone on here.

Again, everything that needs to be said has already been mentioned, but this community will continue to support your father and your family. Thank you for posting, as it shows those of us here that someone is actually reading and seeing our well wishes and prayers.
"It's as Ann as the nose on plain's face."
"It's the same everyday and the wave won't break. Tell you to pray while the devil's on their shoulder."
Your father was not only a great entertainer, but a terrific human being. It seems that every time I would come onto this forum to check his progress he would speak about you and your family; that was the most important thing in his life, and nothing could keep him from talking about you. I too give your family my thoughts and prayers, and thank you so much for writing to us.
Thank you for posting Joanna, my thoughts still go out to you and your family in this difficult time. Your father was a great man, even though I only talked online with him 2 times he still came off as a great man. Again my thoughts are with your whole family.

In the meantime, I just joined Twitter so follow @primetyme1988
Most of my tweets will likely be random thoughts on wrestling.

Like everyone else here I'm sorry for your loss, your father was someone who entertained us growing up and we are all thankful that we became somewhat a part of his life. From his posts on here he was nothing but positive even going through what must've been an extremely difficult time. My condolences to you and the rest of your family.
