One of my best friends whom I will miss until my dying day. Chill was always there for me and my family whenever we needed him without any question or for anything in return. The heavens have been given a true angel 😇 taken too soon from us all but God has a plan for him that is far greater than what he had here with us all. I am at ease to know that I have a guardian angel in heaven to watch over me until we meet again. God rest his soul and give peace to a true friend who I will remember the rest of my life. RIP Willie James Johnson “Chill Will “. 😇🙏❤️🤟🏼✌🏼
