Our deepest and profound condolences. Our thoughts and prayers are with at this difficult time.
Johnny was a special soul. He loved people, he brought them a helping hand, joy, laughter, humor. A good story teller, shared his knowledge, experiences and adventures. He had the best contagious laugh ever. A beautiful smile hiding his fears, uncertainty, pain and suffering. Buddy you are at peace now, even though you will be dearly missed, you will live on in our memories and in our hearts forever.
Your work is now done on earth. God called upon you because he needed a special Angel.
Now sweet Angel be free but please look down on us and protect the ones you love and all that love you.
Johnny my dear nephew, until we're reunited.
Love always,
Auntie Andrée and family xoxo
