  3. Dearest FAMILY,
    I’m so VERY sorry and I know my card won’t make it to let you know how much I loved JOHNNIE … with his beautiful spirit and generous, kind nature … I’m glad Marty will be there for you … as he’s beyond grief and I know he and I would NEVER want to have had Johnnie to suffer …and when Greg died and I was grieving so also – my Catholic Monsignor said, do not be said and believe “he’s with you as he’s in Heaven …and I HAVE TO TELL YOU THAT TOO MANY THINGS HAVE HAPPENED FOR ME TO BELIEVE THAT HE IS INTERVENING WHEN I AM HAVING PROBLEMS. So keep him with you in your hearts & mind … I even, sometimes, ask Greg to help me solve something … and it happens! GOD LOVE YOU ALL …

  4. Bill and I are sad to hear of Johnny’s passing. He was always a friendly guy and loved everyone. I remember when we were young Mr. Hancock brought Johnny over because he had gotten his hands in battery acid. He was always a car guy and loved to fix things. He’s in the heavens above with his mom and dad. RIP my friend! Penny and Bill Pazier.

  5. My deepest condolences to all Hancock family. Johnny was a big teddy bear. I remember when I was a little girl we were at church for alter call I was holding Johnny’s hand.
