        He was indeed a very unique and colorful man. I personally will miss the banter between us. Wherever and whenever Johnny made a stand weither it was right or wrong, he stood by it. I pray that he finds the peace that he couldn't find here. My condolences to his family. RIP my friend. You are missed!!!
