    We lived next door to Johnny and Janet for 15 years, and one of the hardest things about moving was leaving then behind. He was kind, gentle, helpful, and the best neighbor and friend a person could ask for. I pray he is getting his reward for a life well spent. I’m so sorry for the pain of his loss for everyone. Much love and sympathy to you all.
