A limb has fallen from the family tree. I keep hearing a voice that says, “Grieve not for me” Remember the best times, the laughter, the song. The good life I lived while I was strong. Continue my heritage, I’m counting on you.  Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through. My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest. Remembering all, how I truly was blessed. Continue traditions, no matter how small. Go on with your life, don’t worry about falls. I miss you dearly, so keep up your chin. Until the day comes we’re together again.

Memorial services for Johnny and Judy Kay Lunsford will be 11:00 a.m. Saturday, September 18, 2021 at 2750 Rogers Road West, Rison, AR 71665.

I didn't know him personally.  But this family is in my prayers and I would have to say his obit is perfectly written.
