    A wonderful man, he treated everyone the same. He was a very humble, outgoing person. He was just a wonderful human being. So sad to hear of his passing.

    I was really surprised when I heard the news about Johnny. I worked with Johnny for several years at McDonalds. Never a dull moment around Johnny. He was a very good friend to anybody he met. He will dearly be missed. Johnny I can still see you making your rounds early in the mornings checking parking lots for change dropped by customers. We'll miss you and will see you again one day.

    To the Family of John "T," It is with sorrow, that I extend my deepest sympathy to you during this difficult time. John "T" was always such a kind, helpful, thoughtful, and friendly person. I'll always remember him for his love of flowers. He could take a dying plant and bring it back to life. May you find strength and comfort from friends and love ones during this time of bereavement. Stay blessed. With Love and Sympathy, Dorothy Watkins PO Box 374 Enfield, NC
