    We loved Johney! He was always so jolly and full of the Lord. His smile was glorious and I know he is in Heaven having a great time with everyone there. We mourn because of our loss but rejoice because he has moved to a Higher Place and probably running the Streets of Gold. Brenda, we love you and pray God will help you adjust to life without Johney until it is your time to join him. To Kristina and the rest of the children, you were blessed to have your Dad for so many years. Remember the good times!

    This guy was amazing. I met him a few times and I must say he was really nice to me. He will deff be missed. He was apart of my family and although I didn’t really know much of him I know he was still family. Such a shame when people pass. But he is in a mmuch better place now.
