Many, many memories of younger days and throughout our lives, you were like a brother to Randy. Whether it was discussing catching the waves at Windy Hill, Nascar, or every phone call ending with "See ya on the 4th", we both will smile of the times we shared.
Rest in Peace, Johnny, 'til we meet, again! Randy and Joyce
