Gary and family, may you father rest in peace. Keeping all of you in my prayers. Difficult to lose our family and harder during holidays. Jean

Gary, My wife and I would like to express our deepest condolences on you father's passing. Having lost my dad a few years ago, I'm well aware of the range of emotions you're feeling right now. We both know he's now in a better place. He lived a good, long life, and left 92 years of memories for all of you. In that way, they're never really "gone". Again, our thoughts and sympathies are with you (and Marie) at this moment. God Bless.

Delores & Family, Our deepest sympathies to your family. Johnny entertained my parents at various functions through the years with his wonderful musical talents. My Dad, Perry, especially loved the dobro & steel guitar music. We continue on in life having been blessed with his kindness, gentleness and musical memories. God bless you at this difficult time.
