    My dad was my hero & I told him so many times throughout his life. All he had to do was show his disappointment in me & I’d cry like a baby because I had let my daddy down. He was a giving & caring man who never asked for anything in return; in fact, he went without so that we could have things we needed or wanted. Even when I was grown, this continued for my children & then his great-grandchildren. They were his life & he loved them with all of his heart. The last few years as he struggled with his memory from Alzheimer’s disease & his heart condition, he fought hard to stick around for us. He was a rock for me when I lost my son & again when we lost my grandson. Putting his own feelings deep down so he could be there for us. This man was our rock, our leader, our “management”, our dad & our grandpa...he did it with the grace & patience of a saint. There will never be another like him, he set the bar way too high. Rest In Peace daddy & take care of my boys until I can be with y’all again. I love you to the moon & back!

    We lost our beloved Uncle. This man was one of the good men in our family, kind, funny, and loving to his wife and family. Always there to help and never asking anything in return. Uncle Johnny had been quite ill in the past few years, but always struggled through so he could be there to take care of his family. Farewell dear uncle your struggle is over. May you rest in eternal peace you have earned your rest. I will always remember you with love and respect.
