A Tribute To Johnny Ray Pochop From his Mom Stella Childress

A Tribute to my Son Johnny Ray Pochop

My darling Son Johnny how do I count all the love in my heart for you, my heart is so full of love for you there will never be a day go by when something I see or hear will remind me of you.

I loved you when I was carrying you, and when you were born you brought so much love, excitement and happiness in my life.  I loved so much being a Mommy.

What am I going to do now that you are not here for us to call each other every day and send our funny text’s to each other, I always looked so forward to talking to you..

We were always at competition with each other in who could make the best coffee, or cook the best, and I would say oh you learned it all from me, but I always knew that you were great at everything and you learned all the good cooking techniques from yourself.

You were not only a wonderful Son, my friend, you protected your family; you were a teacher for your children, you were always at your children’s games and gave them your support.

My sweet and wonderful Son the work you did for Jesus with your family and being a loyal Christian, always being there at Apostles helping out the Pastors in all that was needed of you..

Now that you are no longer here, you are still in my heart and will be there forever, and I know for serving God on earth you will have all your rewards in heaven, and one day when I am called home, we will be together again.

I felt my rewards for having children, is having now my wonderful grandchildren, thank you for always being a good husband to Christy and a wonderful father to David and Ashlyn.  I love you so very much and miss you unbearably.

Forever, Mom


A Tribute From Your Son David

Dad I am lost for words, I can’t believe you’re really gone right now. I think we were always having little fights because we both thought we were right and we both were very stubborn. I miss that a lot….

One big memory that is not going to happen again is us going to the movies on Fridays or Saturdays to see every new movie out. I am really going to miss that and all the other times we spent together. Like Ashlyn said we learned so much from you.  You were my biggest hero, not just to me but all my friends too. They always thought you were mad when really you weren’t; you just looked mad which would make me laugh quite a bit.  It hurts me, knowing you won’t get to be here as we grow up and progress in life as you would have wanted. I LOVED YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  REST IN PEACE GRUMPY
