Michael Douglas Johnson, 54"You passed away so peacefully my dear brother, you sat on the beach enjoying beautiful Lake Michigan the weekend before you died, you even checked tornado off your bucket list as you said. Your children are raised and even got to meet your first grand baby. I'm so happy for you, and I am filled with tears of joy and sadness that you are on your way to give Jesus a big hug like you have given to so many of us who are left behind. I feel that God wanted you more than us with your untimely passing, you're so lucky (or should I say blessed) that you are rid of the pain and sin that riddles this world. Do know that you will be missed by all of us and not easily forgotten BIG brother? I love you." -Todd JohnsonMichael Douglas Johnson, 54, of Bringhurst, passed away on Monday September 5, 2016, at his home.
