“The thought of me being gone forever will never register, only my flesh is dead. My spirit lives on through all of you, especially my kids. Every memory of me will overflow your hearts with endless joy and laughter. Seeing there was never a dull moment when I was around, remember me for living life to the fullest, not only fearless but careless at times. That was just me, I know hearing I moved on to paradise, left many with tears, hopefully not more than the laughs we all shared. I appreciate all of my family and friends coming to celebrate my life, and as you can see, I’m still the life of the party”. Elbert Johns, III
