God wanted you now to just sit, fish, and talk all day until time for me to come home. You always said it would work out.

He would always tell me I got Angels, Come Holy Spirit, He would sing himself happy. Rest Now Johnson. I love you, I am not sure what happen I left home one day you were here and returned to find you gone. Servant of God well done. Hard working hands were tired, a servants prayer was answered.  We didn’t have much but we had enough. To Travis and Danna and the rest of you all, please know that I love you all.  Continue to Serve God and remember what I tried to teach you that Gods Love never changes.  Didn’t have much but we had enough. ( From his wife Louise Wellington)

While the Johnson family would love to be surrounded by your presence, they acknowledge the health risks to family, church members, friends, and particularly to those who are most vulnerable to this disease, the elderly and those with chronic  health conditions.
