  1. I remember the day Wayne had his leg amputated. That day I came home after hours at the hospital. Johnny along with Scott had built and placed ramps at our front and back doors, without our asking. He always had a smile and wave for our family, and would always be at the ice cream truck, offering to buy ours. God Bless you all as you learn to live without him. Cherish the good memories and you will see him again.❤️

  2. It’s hard to believe that he’s really gone.
    For years I’ve heard of the legendary ceiling man . It was a friendly competition. But the fact remains and everyone knew that any work he did was sure to be exactly squared and perfect.
    Anytime I seen him he was sure to give me a hug or kiss. Ask about my momma , husband or kids.
    Always spoke kind and gently .
    Always told me he loved me.
    I did get a giggle from his summer cut off jean shorts.
    He loved and he was loved.
    My husband loved him. He considered him one of his best friends.
    There will never be another .
    May he sing with the angels , reunite with his mom and dad and see us all again when we get to heaven.
    He is forever loved and always missed .
