    Mr. Johnson will be missed dearly by many. A true testimony of God. Enjoyed him and his wife visiting the store for many years. I know he is rejoicing in heaven right now, no more pain, no sadness for him any longer. Truly missed.

    Uncle Fred L, you made a Godly impression on my life. The stories that were told about my Johnson family impacted my life greatly. You held a very special place in my Dad Billy Ray’s heart and mind. He loved you and you made a huge impression on my faith in the Lord. Thank you for all your devotion to our Lord and the service you accomplished in the Kingdom of God. You were a priceless treasure while here on earth. I know your daughters will miss you tremendously. I love you Uncle Fred L. Until then…I will bear my cross and wait for my crown and run to tell the world about my Jesus I found.
