I am heartbroken to hear of Johnny’s passing. He was a dear friend of my parents and would always stop in when he came for a visit to his old stomping grounds. The stories and the laughter were joyous. He treated me, as a kid, like I was as good a friend to him as my Dad was. That means alot to a kid and he quickly became a dear friend to me also. I cherished every chance I got to visit with Johnny. I will miss him forever.

I want to say that I am deeply sorry to hear of your lose. Sometimes words are not enough to express what you may be facing. I don’t want to just say some words and be gone. But I want to extend love of neighbor to you as Jesus wanted his followers to do. If you just need a listening ear or some encouragement. PLEASE feel free to email me back.
