My sincere condolences to the entire Johnson family! I knew Emory ever since I was a small boy and, through the years, always enjoyed talking, and kidding around, with him! Emory had a wonderful sense of humor and I always liked to hear his booming laugh and see a big smile on his face. He will be missed by all those who knew a great man!

Saundra and family
I just learned of Emory’s passing. Sorry to hear about these things but being apart so long does not destroy the good times we shared back in Calhoun county. May the Lord continue to bless each of you.
