Amy Lynn Johnson passed from this life into the arms of Jesus on June 1, 2013. Amy was born to Vicki Draper and George Johnson on December 2, 1974, in Texarkana, Texas. Amy was a beautiful baby girl, full of life and charm. She moved to Midland, Texas, with her parents shortly after her birth, attended Midland schools, received her GED at Midland College, and lived her whole life here in Midland, Texas.

Amy is preceded in death by her grandfather, Henry H. Brooks and her great-grandmother, Hallie Mae O’Rear.

She is remembered by her loving mother, Vicki Draper, her step-father, Perry Draper, her six children, Taylor Alexander Johnson, Brittany Lynn Johnson, Wesley Jacob Johnson, Samy Hayden Leamon-Johnson, Sadie Belle Leamon-Johnson and Preston James Johnson, her sister, Shawna Ann Lewellen, her step-brother, Swade Draper, her grandmother, Audrey Brooks, her niece, Brooke Delanie Lee, all of Midland, and many aunts, uncles and cousins. Amy loved her children with all her heart and always wanted the best for them. Family was of the utmost importance to her. She treasured her relationships with her mother, her grandmother and her sister. She was a member of Crestview Baptist Church. Amy was a beautiful girl, with a heart for others. She asked for little and loved much. She knew the Lord and shared Jesus with many people with whom she had contact. She knew her Bible and shared with others on many occasions the grace and mercy of our Lord. She has been freed from her struggles and is home with her Father. We will miss her, but rest in the assurance that we will be reunited with her again.

Our hearts are with the entire Brooks and Draper family as you mourn the transition of Amy Lynn. There are no earthly words that will comfort you in a way that The Word can comfort you. I pray that your focus will be on her love for you and on the unconditional love of Our Father as you travel through the desert of grief. Each one will travel this journey uniquely and alone with God.
I pray you will give each other the time needed to do whatever comes naturally for you as you travel. It will only remain dark for those who have no hope in eternal life. I pray for those who do not know the unconditional love of Jesus Christ that they will come to him and begin a new life.
Eventually (there is no timetable on when grief should end) you will begin to see light and memories will become sweet. Focus on her loving spirit and life. I beg you to take all the good that she has given and pay it forward in her name. Be better, be stronger, love more and LIVE to glorify God in everything you do.

I am reminded of when Mr. Brooks was beginning his transition into the Father's arms. He told me that he saw a great scroll wrapping around the bedroom. It had The Word written on it and it was sweet to eat. He wanted to devour it. Your legacy is telling you to do the same. Allow God's bountiful Word to supply all your needs according to His great riches.

Mankind will be insufficient. Our God is not. The verse that Henry was remembering can be found in the book of Jeremiah 15:16 “Your words were found, and I devoured them. Your words are my joy and my heart's delight, because I am called by your name, O LORD God of Armies.” Amy was called by her name and not too early nor too late.

Our hearts and thoughts are with you all. May God completely surround you with his heavenly and earthly angels and may they supply everything you need in abundance.

Randal, Ryne, Jennefer, Michael, Anna, Colby, Bella and I are with you.
Philippians 1:3-6

I have been trying to find the right thing to say since i heard the news Tuesday, but where do you begin to describe a life long friendship. There are so many starting with 6th grade talent show, or when your hair turned green in moms hot tub, or even the long walks we would take with the kids to "help" you go into labor with Brittany....there are just so many to list. And even though there was 1600 miles between us, we could always just pick up the phone and talk just like we was still next door. I cherished our friendship greatly and you will be missed
Love you always,

I love you Amy. I will always miss you and what might have been. I will cherish my memories of you. Your passing leaves a void in my life that hurts my heart. My thoughts are of you, sweet girl, your sweet spirit, your loving kindness to others, your hope for something better, your trust in the goodness of others, and your love of Jesus. Truly, rest in peace sweet Amy, until we are reunited in Christ.
