This came to one of his close cousins as she heard of his passing:
You fought a battle, a hard long battle my son, you’re not alone I’ve been with you the whole time. Your time on earth is done. Take my hand I’m bringing you to your heavenly home. You’ll have no more suffering no more pain. Come with me and rejoice in my name.
Due to Johnny’s request, there will be no services. The family thank you all for your prayers during this difficult time.
