In loving memory of, Jessie James Johnson, who was a loving and dearly missed husband, as well as, devoted friend. He loved his family and friends. Jessie was called home to be with the Lord and does not want his wife, family and friends to grieve while he's on his eternal journey. He promised to keep everyone updated on what the journey would be like: Heaven’s train has come. In a loud, but peaceful voice, I answered to someone calling my name. The conductor told me, “time to go." I hadn’t seen it coming and I wish that I had known. Soft smoke started billowing and billowing up as the train whistled a fluted sound. And up eternity’s track we had to go to leave this earthly ground. I’d like to have known my passage was booked and the fare paid. That's when I was certain my departure was planned. I was just as surprised as all of you because I was still battling courageously when from life-to-death I spanned. So here I stand on the departure docks and into eternity I’ll go. But I’ll leave part of my heart with you all so you will always know...I LOVE YOU! I’ve found my seat now on the train and it is feeling more like home. As for baggage…we all have none except for love and memories we’ve known. My ticket was punched and handed back after searching my heart and face. On the front of the ticket read: “FIRST CLASS TO HEAVEN THROUGH CHRIST’S ATONING GRACE”. And suddenly I’m feeling so calm about where I’ve been and where I’m going. I can trust you all to God’s sweet grace for His mercies you’ll be knowing. I can see you all so clearly as the train chugs and we depart. You all were always so close to me that I had to ask myself, "Where does life end and heaven start?" I still can reach out and touch you, so I’ll be sending my love each day. Your sorrows are going ease with time yet my deep love will always stay. The train is starting to slow down now. We’re arriving at eternity as heavenly mansions come into view…Glorious as they can be with streets paved in gold! So don’t be filled with sadness, for I’m here in peaceful abode. The train simply brought me back to my God and the joys of my heavenly home. Do not look at it as good-bye because this vessel holding my soul had to die. The day will come for you all to take another step closer until we meet again in the sweet by and by.
Jessie James Johnson will be truly missed by a host of loving relatives and friends. Psalms 23
