I’ve known ‘Poppy’ since I was a child. His daughter Winona and I have been life long best friends since we first met as children at J.E. Moss. Johnnie was always kind and caring...and doing ‘I’m pulling your leg’ kind of jokes as part of his personality. Some days I would catch him playing his guitar and singing. Johnnie and his family have always been loving, kind, and caring towards me since the day I met them all. So many fond funny memories...wouldn’t change it for the world!!! Your kindness and personality Will Be Missed. Thank you for the fond memories!!!🌹🌹🌹🌹
