I have known Johnny since my high school years. He could always make me laugh. While I was still working as a nurse, there were times he was my patient and we would have some great talks and again always left me with a laugh. My deepest condolences to Cathy and all of the Jason family and friends. Rest In Peace and save a place for me.
