Johnnie was a very nice man, he helped us a great deal with moving our cows and at auctions. He was always joking with me over naming my cows. He will be greatly missed. Our prayers are with you all in this time of sorrow.

Tootie and Family,
I was so sorry to hear the news of your father's passing. I know he will be missed. I remember all the fun, laughs and horse shows we attended and how he helped the 4-H club so much. His devotion to all us "kids" was wonderful.
