So sorry for your loss, Sharon. Prayers for you, Declan and the family. I did not know Johnny personally but from what I’ve seen over the years, Johnny loved you and Declan very, very much. Anyone could clearly see the happiness and love in his eyes in all of your photos of him. Much love and prayers to you and Declan, ❤️🙏🏻
