To the Johnson family.
Words cannot express the gratitude and love me and my family has had for you all. Growing up I watched Mr. Johnson teach both of my sister's in band and I followed not long after alongside his son the Marching Buccaneers. I truly will miss Mr. Johnson for what he instilled in me and he will forever be missed.
We love you all so much
Love The Johnson Family Shavon, Samai, Eddie, Shirley, and Camille.
