John 14: 2-3

In my fathers house are many mansions if it were not so I would have told him him go
to prepare a place for you and if I go and prepare a place for you
I will come again and receive you unto myself that where I am, there ye may also be
As you have believed in me I have prepared, in the mansion of my fathers house
I will receive you there: to God be the glory.


Rest in Peace Johnny Bell you will be remembered in fond memories of times past. Blessed are those who walk with the Lord.

I grew up with John we had tons of fun in high school. He lived right by my husband Dunday and Albin Johnson. I talked with him on Facebook alot. I didn't know he was sick and I was shocked to hear he passed. My name was Linda Branley at that time and my sister Patty was very close to Jeannie. I was also close to Ducky and Tony. My thoughts and prayers for the family during this time of grieving for such a wonderful man. Rest in peace my dear friend and I will see you again in heaven.
