    I was one of Johnny’s teachers when I worked in Silsbee. My heart is broken.
    I remember that he was always a happy child. When he was in my class, he always had a smile on his face.
    He brightened my day. I will always have a special place in my heart for him.
    I am praying for you that God will give you comfort and strength, today, and in the days to come.
