    So sorry to hear of Johnnie’s passing. Johnnie was in the basketball officiating class that I thought. He worked hard and had an infectious smile. Please accept my condolences.

  7. To the family and friends of Johnnie, you have my deepest sympathy in your loss. When someone you love dies, it is as if you have been robbed of something truly precious, and there is nothing you can do about it. God knows how you feel because he had to endure the pain of His son’s agonizing death. Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages sin pays is death, but the gift God gives is everlasting life by Christ Jesus our Lord.” May you rely on God’s promise that Johnnie will live again!
