I am sorry to hear of your loss. As often as we deal with death it is never easy. I hope the many memories bring a smile to your face. Soon in God's time he will end death (Isaiah 25:8). Also a resurrection to earth under changed conditions awaits our dead loved ones (Acts 24:15; Revelation 21:4).

My thoughts and prayers go to Mr. Johnny's family during this time of sorrow. Not only did Johnny outfit me with clothing when I was small, but he was also a wonderful mentor and supporter for me (and others) as a ??Saturday? salesman at Broussard & Viator??s Men and Boys?? Wear in New Iberia over 4o years ago. The examples that Johnny provided as a role model on how to treat people and customers were valuable lessons to me at the time I was in high school and have been a guide to me throughout my adult life. God bless his soul.
