So sorry to hear about Johnny. I remember when Ed and I met, and Johnny was around like a little brother to me as well as Ed. He was my friend. I miss him. I am sure Ed is happy he has someone to go fishing with now. Wish I could be there on Saturday. I am so sorry I won’t be able to make it. Oh how sad I am for his loss.
Love, Ann

We can hear him saying, “Uncle Johnny loves you.” We love you too Uncle Johnny. Wish we could be there on Saturday but I ma sure he would understand why we can’t. May you be blessed with his laughter in your memory.
Love, Angella & Brenden Smith
