I am so very sorry to hear about your loss. Johnny was a favorit cousin of mine. David and I were both disappointed because we didn’t know about this until after the funeral. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Dear Family,

Johnnie was one of the nicest men I have known. I loved to hear him laugh. His laugh and his genuine good spirit I will forever remember. He will be missed at Freeman Metal Products.

My heart goes out to you and your family. I remember Johnnie as such a kind, helpful, and gentle spirit. Whenever I saw him at the airport or at Freeman Metal, he always had a smile on his face. My prayers and thoughts are with you.
