    Anita and family,
    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Uncle Johnny. It’s heartbreaking to lose a family member..especially a husband,father or grandfather. He is now in heaven with dad, mamaw, and papaw. Although that doesn’t take away the pain from our hearts, it’s comforting to know that he is no longer in any pain. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
    Love you all,

  8. Gail Estridge Asher says:

    I want to say how sorry I am for your families loss of John. I attended school with him and Rick both and I didn’t know until just recently that Rick had passed away also. We used to ride the bus together for many years and they were both great guys. It’s nice to have the comfort of knowing they are rejoicing with each other in Heaven but I will be praying for all of your family as you go through this difficult time. God bless.
