I am sorry to hear of John's passing he was quite the character back in the day I have fond memories of Ray and Johnny from back in riding Salvation army bus as well as Boys Farm School days where we used to have a lot of fun I am very sorry for the family's loss today Ray and Johnny are fishing in God's Country and I can hear them just laughing and telling jokes God bless them both and their families during this time of sorrow Johnny and Ray don't catch all the big ones save a few for the rest of us I will see you on the other side brothers.
