A favorite hunting dog is buried in this area and Johnny’s wishes were always to have his ashes scattered in a place where some of his favorite memories were born.

The Family will gather at the home of Johnny and Shelia throughout this week and welcome visitors at any time. Part of Shelia’s Texas Family is visiting now and would love to meet some of their friends. In lieu of flowers or other gifts the family asks to give a donation to The Humane Society as Shelia and Johnny have a life-long love of lost and misplaced animals.
