Sandy,Christopher,Uncle Andy, Drew and Maryann....We were so sorry to hear of the unexpected passing of Johnny. We were out of town for the week, so we were unable to attend the viewing or funeral. We will always have great memories of Johnny. No one prepares us for the loss of anyone let alone someone so young. You will struggle with the loss, so lean on each other for support. Much love and prayers from us to you..Dianna & Dave Ashford
