    My husband Tom and I wish to extend our condolences to Chip and all the Chipley girls. We were very saddened to hear of Johanna’s passing. I hold precious memories of our growing up together and how Johanna was always smiling and laughing; she was a happy person. She was very proud of her husband and children and we spent many Christmas Days together at our Mother and Father’s house when all of our children were young. She is gone too soon but I take comfort in knowing she in now in God’s hands and is reunited with our parents in heaven. Travis and Tom Kady

    Erin, I remember meeting your mom and telling her how happy we were that Jake brought you into our family! She was very gentle and sweet. I know these days ahead will be difficult but know that many will be keeping you in their thoughts and prayers (all of you). Also, know that your Mom will watch over you from Heaven and she will find ways to let you know that. She will be healthy and happy in Heaven! So until y’all are together again, just hold tight to your precious memories and know she will always be in your heart ❤️🙏🏻😇🥰 Love you!!
