"My sincere sympathy and prayers for the loss of a dear friend. Our group will always have fond memories of holiday Fun. May your family find Joy in remembering the happy Moments in life."

Jeff Stoffel from North Aurora, IL

"I first got to know “Mr. Johnson” during my high school years, as he was the father of my best friend, Ken. He was a father figure to me, and he and Diane always treated me like one of their own. As I became an adult, he became “Bruce”, and I got to know him on a deeper and more mature level. He was a gentle decent man, quick to smile, with a deep intellect and diverse interests. He set an excellent example for me and I sure am going to miss him. I pray the Johnson family’s pain and sorrow would soon pass, giving way to only the sweetest memories of this fine man."
