    To all the family of Bart Johnson,
    I am a classmate of Bart’s. He was always so kind and was a happy person. He always stopped to chat when we ran into each other over the years. RIP in peace my friend. Sending prayers to the family for peace and comfort in the coming days.

    I’ve always loved Bart. Maybe because he’s so sweet to me. My earliest memory with Bart was at his aunt Helen Ivins house. Every Johnson family member was there. I was around seven years old. When it got dark out the adults moved to the kitchen and the teens moved out doors. For some reason I was not allowed out side so I sat Ali e in the den. Bart walked in from the garage through the den and into the kitchen. He spoke. He spoke on his way back through and I complained that everyone wants to stay outside and I’m stuck in here bored and alone. He couldn’t stand it. He promised he’d be going back outside but he would play goldfish with me. He set the kind boundary when I begged one more game? Ol two games of gold fish then I’m going back out. I tried for three games i so enjoyed his company, even better than being outside with everyone else. I never forgot that he played two card games of goldfish with me when I knew he’d rather be outside with all the fun. He probably wouldn’t even remember that today. But I never forgot that. Every time I got to see cousin Bart I felt that same sweetness from him. Jennifer , Bart and Jeff have always been so special to me. Rual and Sarah as well. Such special folks to me. One of my favourite families, for sure. I am praying for the whole Johnson clan at this time. Of sadness and disbeliefs. I love you Bart! Thank you for always making me feel like I mattered xo

    I always loved Bart. Maybe because I never forgot how sweet he was When I was around seven years old , is my earliest memory of Bart. we had a family gathering at Mimi’s Helens house. Everyone was there. When it got dark the adults were in the kitchen and the teens were outside. My mom wouldn’t let me go out so I sat alone in the den bored. Bart walked in the den to the kitchen and spoke. I told him how bored I was and he played two games of gold fish with me. I never forgot that !! I knew he wanted to get back out there because he let me know. One more game then I’m going back out. He stuck to his word though I did try dor a third game. Every time after that it was always a sweet joy to see him. Still as sweet as ever. I know his sweetness is amplified now as he is in paradise with the lord. I know he will be missed and loved forever.
