To Johnnie's Family: Please accept my sincere sympathies for your loss. He was taken from all of you way too soon. I watched the podcast and agree with those who said that he was always smiling or laughing (a rare trait that will surely be missed.) I pray that your good memories of all the happy times you spent with him help ease the pain of his passing. Love, Rene

Keith Brown on Jan 11, 2021

You left without warning. Gone so fast. Now all we have are memories of the past. You are loved by so many. You might have not known. But in our hearts is where you have grown. The memories I have throughout the years, will last forever with laughter and tears. I will miss you oh so much. So will all the lives that you touched.

I love you bro!
