Jimmy, Jennifer, and Joanna,
I am sorry to hear about your mother. I will always have fond memories of her, along with your father. I best remember all the good times we had growing up. Your parents always made me feel welcome, even in subsequent years when they started the restaurant.

You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
Jason A Johnson and Family

Jimmy, Jennifer, and Joanna, words just arent enough
and honestly I don't know any to suffice your loss
but HE knows the pain you're going through and
I sincerely pray HE wraps his arms around you all
and all of the family and gives you all the
comfort and strength you need to endure.
John 14:1-4 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.”
Love and prayers...
