    Aunt Shirley, so sorry for your loss. Uncle Johnny was a wonderful person, so glad he was a part of my life. I’m sure he is having a good time in heaven with my Dad, Timmy, Treva, and all the rest of the family. Please take care of yourself, Uncle Johnny would want you to. Love you!

    Shirley, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I remember going to church with Johnny at the Salvation Army on Monroe Street in Nashville. I know his family lived across the street from our church and all the kids attended it….so many memories of each one. There were four guys who were good friends during that time: Wayne Neely, Donald Coleman,
    Joe Knobel (who is my brother) and Johnny. Many thoughts and prayers for you and your family. God Bless You.

    Though I only met Uncle Johnny once, I remember him as the happy-go-lucky great uncle who always knew the best time to make a joke. He will be missed. Sending love, hugs, and prayers to all.

    Aunt Shirley, Tina, and Anthony
    Love and prayers to all of you and your families.
    Although I couldn’t be there, please know that you
    were in my thoughts and prayers and will continue
    to be. When I heard the news, my thoughts also went
    back to Monroe and vacations with grandparents, aunts,
    uncles, and cousins on the front porch. Also a
    barbeque at you house and homemade ice cream. I treasure those memories and will always remember
    Uncle Johnny that way. I hope your good memories will comfort you as much as mine do.
    Love and hugs to all,
    Claire
