Today all of our Johnson Family, friends and loved ones are saying goodbye to this wonderful man. It is a sad day for us, but such a day it must be for him.

He lived his life in such a way that he was loved by all. There are so many wonderful people on this earth but some stand out as  "special"  and he is one of them.
