  1. My sincere condolences to you and the family, Ms. Angela. Prayers for strength and comfort for all of you. May God bless you and the family in this time of sorrow.

  2. Please accept my heartfelt condolences. God (Psalms 83:18) is the Creator of life. The Bible calls Jehovah God “the source of life.” (Psalm 36:9; Acts 17:24, 25) The One who gave life to all living creatures is certainly capable of restoring life to someone who has died. He has resurrected humans in the past through his son Jesus Christ and he is eager to do it again. John 11:29-44; 1 Corinthians 15:26

  3. Dear Angela–

    I am so sorry for your loss. Johnny was a good man, and may his soul rest in peace. The pictures are lovely–from a happier time. The last picture is perfect. God bless you.

    Much love,

  4. Angela,
    I am so sorry. I feel bad about the loss of Johnny. He will always be my best friend. I am so sorry I did not get to see you. You were always good to Johnny.

  5. Hi, This is primarily addressed to Randy and Tena, Donna, and Johnny Sr. ; I never met any of you but I heard your names in conversation frequently. I had met and spoken on occasion to Betty, mom, even after I moved to Austin in early ’87. I met Johnny during the early fall of ’86 after I had graduated from A&M. That’s when our tumultuous relationship began; it lasted/persisted for three years. We stayed in touch occasionally for an additional 25 years. He was troubled, he had a good heart, he was happy to be married, and as I already wrote – he was troubled. I found out that he had died when I tried to look him up online last week. I spoke with his friend Matt for more than 3 hours last weekend and he answered some questions I had. I will always remember the good in JD. My thoughts, prayers, and condolences to you.
