    I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. Growing up, my cousin Johnny and & I were close and spent many happy times together. Even though life led us in different directions, and we pretty much lost contact, my memories of Johnny always brought a smile to my face. Kind man that he was, I’m sure her brought smiles to many other face of those lucky enough to meet him. Wishing his family love as they deal with their loss.

    I am so sorry to hear about Johnny. He was a wonderful man, that loved God; his Country and his family. He was always so proud of all his kids. His eye lit up when he mentioned you all. His love was his Rose. I am praying for you all at this time; remember the great times, cherish them and know you will see him again one day in Heaven. Hugs to you all.
