I was sorry to hear of Johnny's passing. My wife and I had just been riding by in the area where I grew up the other day as I pointed out his house. I mentioned to her how my uncle and I would hunt with Johnny and how we all farmed. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

So sorry to hear, our thoughts are with you all. we will always remember how kind Johnny was to us as kids coming to your house and to his tobacco plant beds when daddy's didn't quite produce enough and he always had us laughing.
