Farewell Johnny, till we meet again.

You were taken too soon. You barely began to live, but you left an impact on those of us left behind. We will keep you in our memories until we see you again in heaven. We have heavy hearts, but you are in the presence of our Lord. You are the lucky one.

Johnny Martin, 1991-2007
