My thoughts and prayers to all the family. My family grew up right down the road from ya'll. We moved from up north and we were treated like we had been born there. I went to school with Keith and new his sisters too. Thank you for your Godly parents and how they raised you. May you find comfort in knowing he is with his heavenly father.
Derryl, Diane, and the D Johnson Family
The tears shed and heartbreak felt by the Johnson family reflect our sadness and loss of brother Herman. His life impacted the lives of our family in so many ways. He shared his family with us and he set a great example of how a Christian man should live. You will be missed, but we know you’re celebrating in Glory! Derryl, Diane, and the Johnson Family
