  3. Dear Angie, Reggie, Joey, Vince & Family,

    I just wanted to let you know that I heard about Johhny today and was deeply touched by his passing.

    Johnny was my Best Friend growing up and the times I spent with him are some of the most wonderful, most cherished and happiest times of my life.

    We had the best childhood that anyone could ever ask or hope for!

    I remember riding bikes, playing baseball, firecrackers on the 4th of July and the sleepovers at your house. Those were the times of my life and I wouldn’t trade them for anything.

    Angie, I will look for your address and write you as I would like to share more of my thoughts with you and the family.

    My heart and prayers go out to Johnny and all of you, with much Love.

    Jim Shuford
