My sincere condolences go out to you Carol for your loss of your husband Johnny and as a father to you Hal Johnny and Wade! Your family has been a blessing to us through the past years! I admired the strength and courage that you showed during the time that you attended the Holy Church of God in Savannah. It wasn't always easy but God was there for you and there were those of us who prayed and appreciated you for you!!! May God bless you and comfort you during your time of sorrow and grief but no that the Bible says that our loss is Heaven's gain for to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord!!! I thought a lot of Johnny....
