Brother Mike Johnson
I am sorry for the passing of your husband. I always enjoyed coming. into his room and offering him a snack and giving him a glass of lemonade that he loved so well. I had found me a new buddy. I will miss him as I know you and your family will miss him more. If you just need to talk or need anything let me know and I will try to help. A friend Melissa.
Vickie, I will be praying for you and your family during this sad time following the death of your daddy. May you feel God’s presence as never before. Love you!
