      Sending my deepest condolences to the Johnson family. Raymond was the definition of a “Family Man”. His energy lit up a room and his dedication to his wife, kids, and grandkids was unmatched. Raymond always knew how to put a smile on your face and made sure it stayed. Raymond will always hold a special place in my heart with the joy he always brought.

      With much love

    Still can’t believe it. You were always like a 2nd Father to me, and I’m forever grateful for your presence in my life. I love you old man and I hope you’re on a new boat up there ripping lips on the water. Til I see you again, I promise to look in on Mama Kay and we’ll all miss you so very very much.
