  1. What a wonderful and loving man ! Johnny will be missed by all who knew him and our prayers are with both families! God’s blessings on the family!

  2. To All in Johnny’s family,
    I have had the unique privilege to know this man & his family. He was so respectful, loyal & an encouraging positive person. From the moment I met him, his love and care for his beautiful wife, Sara, his children and grandchildren were his upmost priorities. He always had a smile from ear-to-ear. It’s how I’ll remember him watching football with Sara – each in their recliners – both content with God and each other. May the Lord comfort and keep you each in His forever loving care. Take of yourselves and each other.

  3. Sara,
    May God bless you in this time. From experience, it won’t be an easy pathway but if you hold to God’s unchanging and unfailing hand, He will never leave you nor forsake. You have been faithful so don’t ever feel you could have done more. Hugs and prayers are going up right now and will be in the next days for sure. Grieve-as-you must, not-as-others will tell you is right, wrong or indifferent. Rest a lot. Take care of yourself.
