  3. My Dear Shirley and Family,

    May the Lord comfort you all with a wealth of memories of John (aka, Johnny).

    My appreciation for you all sharing Johnny with us over the years. He was always true to himself and spread his cheer and opinions at every opportunity possible. Some of my first memories with him are playing Wagon Train in the yard, riding bikes, catching bugs/butterflies, swinging, and just being good ol’ kids. We reconnected on a regular basis when he was a Freshman at A&M Consolidated and my first year to drive my Dad’s truck to school. He became a sort of guardian, making sure folks respected me and the vehicle, often telling the other guys to behave because my Dad was really strong and would give them a talking too if needed. Keep in mind, no locked vehicles, gun racks with 22’s, and your possessions were typically safe then. We shared lots of fun riding horses at school, playing pranks on our friends, and just wanting to grow up, yet fighting tooth n’ nail to hold on to our childhood. Ah, the belly laughs we had without getting in a mess of trouble.

    I will always cherish my time with Johnny. Once again, thanks for this time together.

    Heaven is shining a bit brighter with John present.

    God Bless each of you!!!
