To,Polly, Mary(Raymond)Gwenelle and Grands, you have our deepest sympathy,It seems like our family circle has been broken again, another link has been taken out of the chain.That chain that were bind since brick-city. I look up to Johnny as an older brother just like brother Bill said some few months back we are like brothers and sisters.Their mom Mrs. Pearline and my daddy short Mel and Mrs. Bay, as I sit here with tears in my eyes remembering those days back over on Masonic.Johnny reminded me of my Daddy a whole lot, because first and foremost, he loved his family. He worked hard for his family and they(he and Dad) made sure we had a good foundation they taught us about God. What it means to love your neighbors and respect your elders. They would not pass each other without speaking.Johnny was a very good husband,Dad, Granddad,brother, uncle and brother-inlaw, nephew(rememebering Ms. Bay , Ms.Bert, Ms. Frances,Mr.Buck) and neighbor and friend to the(Calloways, Johnson, Kleckleys, Smith , Sapps, Chambliss,Cobbs,Stones and so many others that were there. As it is recorded in Mathews19;19 Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. This is what he did.

A human life is a story told by God...from beginning to end this story continues as those who loved him remember him with fondness and joy. Psalm 94:19 says "When the cares of my heart are many your consolations cheer my soul." May the Love of God give you peace and comfort.
