    United States Army Major Johnson ....I salute you. Thank you for serving our country and for all those years of service. I am so glad you were a part of the New Smyrna Beach Church of Christ. When I get up to preach, I will look to where you sat in the congregation on Sunday Mornings and remember you. I will know that although you are not in your seat here, you have more than a seat where you now are ....you have your own mansion. I look forward to seeing you again in the not too distant future.

    Daddy,
    I will miss you so so much, I still can’t believe your not here with me anymore. I even miss the phone calls
    Asking me the same questions. I’m so blessed you are free of that now, and whole and well again.
    Thank you for my life, for raising me with respect for others, and teaching me to be kind.
    I love you and will count the days before I am with all of you ,in our Saviors arms.singing songs to Jesus, yes
    What a marvelous day that will be,
    Love you
    Cindy
