Prayers for the family. I had the pleasure of ‘Gabi’ working for me, but then we became ‘good friend, as we shared a love for animals. Through Gabi, I had the pleasure of meeting Johnny. We would meet at the Snap center in Bells,; he was such a good man, and I know he did not feel well, but I never saw him without a smile. They were both special people and he will be missed in the community.
I just found out about Johnny. Johnny and I started the first grade together at wilmot and graduated together. This last two years we have been talking on FB. You will be in my heart and prayers .
Johnny is my first cousin and, unfortunately we lost touch through the years. We found each other through Facebook about a year ago. It was so good to hear from him and I thank God for the time we had to catch up. My prayers go out to the family and friends. Rest In Peace, Johnny.
I love you brother. Already miss the great hugs. Say hello to mama and daddy in heaven.
Johnny Was my neighbor and friend for several years prior to my son Inheriting the place next door to him.. ( Forrest C. Morris). He took care of my young son ( at the time) thru mowing for us (knowing I was on a limited income and had a hard time keeping the mower fed and running), sharing meals (with Gabi’s help), aiding in repairs (hot water heater, plumbing, etc. etc.), sharing his Holly Hocks and Marigold flowers..and just being a Great Neighbor and Friend. Glad you get to be in the Light with Gabi today , see you soon enough! Hugs and Love,
Your old Neighbor, Rachel
