My condolences to my extended family. I am still in disbelief! We have truly lost an Angel. Mr. Rome was a gentle man who always poured his heart out to others. He used to be our Team Dad when his grandson Terrance played for the Redbird Raiders. I have always had the utmost respect for Mr. Johnny and his family. I attended school with his Son and Daughter, Carrie and Tammy. Carrie and I played varsity football together. Mr. Johnny was always around and considered getting a pillar in the community. My dad and all my uncles knew him very well. He will be missed immensely by the the Skyline, Redbird Raider and Thibodeaux families. I love you all so much and so sorry for your loss.
