Words are never adequate in moments like these. We will say though, that our hearts and Prayers go out to you, and we will always remember the joyous memories that we are privileged to have in knowing Jonny Cheryl Mark and Emilee

I can honestly say that there isn't another grandpa as loyal,admiral,loving,caring,chivalrous and as special as you. You are missed. I'm blessed and the luckiest girl in the world to have a grandpa as great as you! You have left to a better place, and never ever forget how loved you truly are. You're amazing! And "I love you like a bear loves his honey!" I can hear you saying that to me now, and i miss you already! Tracey Witt

Johnnie was the strongest person; I've ever known and a great friend to me. To say he will be missed is an understatement. My deepest sympathy to you and your family during this difficult time. So Sorry for your loss, you all are in my prayers, thoughts. I remember all the great times, and stories with Jay and your Mom. I grew up in Romulus and your Mon and Dad would come to our house every Sunday and spend the whole day with us. Jay is at peace now he fought a strong and long battle. May God Bless you all and have such loving memories for years to come. Sandy and Ken your family has my deepest sympathy. Just remember all the good times it will help you heal. I miss my Dad and Mom all the time but remembering them brings peace. John W. Ferguson

Your dad meant a lot to me. He was my 2nd dad 46yrs. I loved that man. All the tellers at Alliance Catholic all loved him to. He will be missed by many. I am so sorry for your loss. I love you. Valerie Welch

Thank you for always welcoming me with open arms and a smile. You will be missed terribly, but will never be forgotten. Rest well my friend and don't cause too much trouble up there!! Meliss-er
