    Herbert Johnson was a man who loved and obeyed the Lord. Herbert would drive anyone who needed transportation for surgeries, groceries, doctors’ appointments, pharmacy, emergencies, and essentials.
    His big heart showered many neighbors, family and friends who were in need.

    I was one who he helped. He was not selfish; he wanted to help people. I have appreciation in my heart because of Herbert.
