    So sorry for your lose. We knew Mr Johnson from visiting the church that he attended. He was a great Christian gentleman and I know he will be missed.

  3. Pamela Schuller says:

    He was one of the kindest, happiest, friendliest people I have ever met. He loved his family and friends. What a loss but know he’s in a better place. You’re in my prayers.

  4. Judith Redmond says:

    What a “true” gentleman! Love of life! Love of family/friends and most importantly Love of Christine. If ever there was a couple, blessed with so much love to share, it was James and Christine. Their love of attending the Senior Renaissance Center’s program, at Cohn, created lots of happiness and this happiness spread to the seniors. After they moved, we didn’t hear from them, due to traveling, etc., but never forgot their zest and love of life and the Lord!

    RIP James!

    I did not know Mr. Johnson, but I do know Christine from the Park Avenue church of Christ and West Nashville Heights church. My
    parents, Leonard and Laura Owens, thought the world of Jimmy & Christine. Each wanted the other to preach his funeral. Jimmy died first but Daddy was too sick to take care of the service. When Christine started dating James, I
    was so happy for her. Since he made Christine
    happy, this was reason to rejoice. I am so thrilled these two had 11 years together…from the pictures, I can see that blending the two families was a Win-Win

    Christine, Bobby & I will keep you in our prayers.

    Jim, we are so sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. He was such a joy to have known. Always smiling and never met a stranger. His light for Christ was always shining. You and your family are in our prayers.

  8. Fred Porter / Elaine Porter says:

    A truly wonderful man! Always a smile on his face and the love of God in his heart. A blessing to Christine and her to him.
    He will be missed.

    Jimmy,
    Ronnie and I are so sorry for your loss. Your Dad was such a loving, caring man and he and Christine were such a precious couple. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
