Scott and family - I am so sorry for your loss. Prayers for you for this difficult time.
Carol, I am so sorry to learn of your loss. Johnny was a very good man! Sad to have lost touch with y'all through the years.
When I worked at Colonial/Big Star with Johnny, he always had the way of making me feel better in the musical way he would greet me. We bowled and golfed together and I even bought that green 66 Fairlane from him. All were pleasant experiences and he as an older role model taught me lessons that he never knew. All my memories of him are fond ones that I cherish.
My thoughts are with you in this difficult time.
An old friend of his and yours

Scott is such a kind, caring, intelligent and responsible person. He will keep making Mr. Little feel proud in heaven.
