    I will always have fond memories spending time at your house when we were kids. Your dad was such a sweet man and I’m so sorry you’re mourning his loss. You were such a loving daughter to him and I know you made his life special… especially during his time of need. Prayers, love and big hugs to you! Again, I’m so sorry.. love you!

    To David and All the Family-
    It has been years since I have seen Johnny but wanted all of you to know how sorry we were to hear of his passing. I know Darrell and Rod would have been sad to hear as well. I remember Mom, Rod and I coming over to Aunt Sue’s and Chuck’s house and spending the day with all of us together. When Johnny entered the military, we did not get to see him much after that and then we eventually moved. It sure is sad to lose so many family members. Our sympathy to all of you.
