    I was so sad to hear of Johnny Ray’s passing. Back in the day, we always had such a good time together-he definitely kept you laughing the entire time! He will be missed in the Molino Community. Prayers to the Chance family, I know his children, grandchildren, siblings and mother are just heartbroken over his loss.
    Rest in peace Johnny Ray.
