    I cannot believe this is actually happening. If you had to describe Johnny, it would be so many Adjectives. Kind, Passionate, Patient, good to others. His smile lit up a room, and made your day. He will be sadly missed. I’m so upset we didn’t get more time together. But i will cherish the memories that i do have. We Love You Johnny. To Mayra, Janelle, and John John. We are Truly Sorry For Your Loss. Our Sincerest Condolences, And We Are Here In Your Time Of Need. ❤️
