Tonight Carol and I went to the Funeral Home to pay our respects to the Johnson family.
The line-up at Comstock's was a testimony to the fact that Brad Johnson had lived a good life, left a lasting legacy and had many friends who loved him and cherished his friendship.
I count it a privilege to have known Brad, a godly man who quietly lived out his faith in ways that impacted many lives. His life spoke volumes. We pray that the God of all comfort will give His peace to Brad's wife Lynda and the entire Johnson family.
I had the pleasure of playing Church League Slo-Pitch with Brad and his brothers Barry and Bryan. Here's a picture of the first team we played on together, the Edmison Eskimos. In the back row from right to left...Brad, Bryan and Barry. Guess who that funny looking guy in the middle of the front row is. Thanks for the memories, Brad!
