    I am glad Johnnie Ray and I reached out to each other in early November. It was good hearing from him. His words "Hey auntieeee!!!!!" still fill my head as we communicated, since we had not spoken in awhile. Memories of him as a little boy playing in my house with my girls will never be forgotten. RIP, Johnnie Ray! You will never be forgotten! Aunt Brenda

    There are no words to express how much Johnnie Ray meant to my family. I remember when we first met Johnnie Ray he was 5 years old and my sister and I would go back and forth to each others house playing. Good memories. Venus and Joyce and family you all are forever in my prayers. Johnnie Ray is with his Heavenly Father and rose in God’s garden. I will never forget Johnnie Ray. RIH. Love Always. The Coney Family and Woods Family.
