Dear Ruby June and Candice as well as the rest of the family:
Polly and I send you our love and sympathy in the passing of Johnnie. I remember when I was a youngster that he worked with my dad, Bill Scott, when dad was alive and building houses and hotels. I know that Johnnie loved His Lord and had a strong desire to proclaim His Word. May our Father give You grace and peace as you begin life anew without Johnnie. May the memories you've made over the years become sweeter every day. in His Love
