I am very sad to here about Johnny. I will miss seeing and talking to him.
Johnny was always very helpful in ever helping me when that I asked him. He was a very smart man and anything he set his mind to he could do.
I am glad I got to know him in the short time of meeting him. He was truly a person that offered his help with no price tag attached. I will miss him as I know you all will.
