  8. Jeff Hutchins, Bee Branch, Arkansas says

    It is difficult to mention Johnny without including Betty. I have a lifetime of memories with this family. They have been dearest friends throughout the years to my parents Windell and Helen Hutchins and their children, I still remember as a child Johnny leading music at Parkview and singing with my mom and the Quartet. Some of our best memories with Johnny and Betty were the vacation trips and the camping and water skiing at Greers Ferrry Lake. The Haag's and Hutchins had a tradition of bringing in the New Year together. This tradition lasted for nearly 50 years until the recent passing of mother. God provided a bond between these two families that has been unbroken. His jolly laughter and kindness will be sincerely missed. Jeff, Libby, and Parker Hutchins
