Accept our sincere sympathies in this difficult time you are going through. I have found the words of Psalms 46:1 really comforting. It reads: "God is our refuge and strength, A help that is readily found in times of distress." Our loving God is there for us if we ask for his help (1 John 5:14). I also have come to know that has made the SURE promise of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55;11).Can you imagine yourself welcoming back to life your loved ones? You can find at jw.org more about how our God, Jehovah, will do all this for us. R&R Lopez

Reverend Johnson, was my spiritual Father, and he imparted so much wisdom to me, and all who had the honor of hearing him preach & teach. Our Heavenly Father saw were he was getting weak, and said come home my son, so you can rest from your labor. He will never be forgotten and my heart is so fill with joy, just to know he was the Shepherd of our flock. John 14:1-3 says, " Let your not your heart be troubled, because our Heavenly has gone on before us to prepare a place, for him and all, who believe, to receive us unto himself". We will see all our love one's again one day. Many Blessings to the Family. Cheryl & Helen Collins, Myrtle Beach, S.C.

"Life is but a stopping place, a pause in whats to be, a resting place along the road to sweet eternity. We all have different journeys, different paths along the way. We all are meant to learn some things but never meant to stay. Our destination is a place far greater than we know, for some, the journeys quicker, for some, the journeys slow. And when the journey finally ends, well claim a great reward, and find an everlasting peace together with the Lord." Sending our sincerest condolences to the entire Johnson Family: From Labor to Reward; Rest In Jesus Reverend Johnson. Thank you for your preaching and teachings even though we only met for a short while. We are forever humbled and grateful for the time you shared with us. Love Always, Ervin and Kimberly Felton, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577
