So sorry for your loss Addy, Austin, and Hannah. I can see why you are all so good looking with the Mom and Dad you had! I pray your Dad was at peace with the Lord when he died and knowing you I know you had a huge influence on Him. Rest in peace Jason Johnson and may God comfort you kids and give you peace also.
