  1. To the Family of Reginald Duane Johnson Sr.

    I pray that you all find comfort and peace within at some point. It may not be today it may not be tomorrow. A death of a loved one always leaves a missing spot in the hearts of those that loved and cared for the person that they have lost. Just know that God has something special for Reggie to do. Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal. He may not be here in the flesh, but consider Reggie as an Angel that will always watch over you. Reggie, or as I called him “Marvin”, was an outstanding person, with a heart of gold. He was a loving and caring individual. He would help anyone who needed his assistance. It didn’t matter if you needed a repair on your vehicle, help moving something, or just a shoulder to lean on with an ear to listen. He never treated anyone in a disrespectful manner, nor did he judge a person. He was always willing the help anyone who needed help, and he never expected anything in return. He believed in working and taking care of his family to the best of his ability. Even if it meant he had to walk miles in the rain or in the freezing temperatures, to get to and/or from work. He was a “Great Man”. He was raised with great morals and ethics. A man with great integrity and character. I will miss you Marvin! The time has come for you to receive all that God has for you. You deserve to be at peace. I will always hold you near and dear to my heart. Respectfully, GiGi (Your Mother-in-Law)
