I have known Johnny since 1963. He was the kindest, most thoughtful human I know. Johnny always treated everyone with love and kindness.

Johnny and Brenda took me and my kids in during my divorce and helped me in every way they could. I cherish that memory of their devotion to helping me.
My sadness is that I did not stay close in the passing years while raising my family and doting on my grandkids. Letting life pull me forward is no excuse, but a regret.

Brenda, you are in my thoughts. I am only a phone call away if you need me. Angie has my number.
Much much love to you Brenda, Angie and Susan. Take care of each other. Sincerely, Brenda Gray.
