Prayer is requested for the family of the late Mr. Charles Edward Johnson who died on May 24, 2007.  Mr. Johnson taught many during his 29-year tenure in the Yalobusha County/Coffeeville School District.  A prominent member of the Oakland community and Pilgrim Rest C.O.G.I.C., he will be missed severely.  Undoubtedly, the world was made a better place during the time he was allowed to spend in it.

Mr. Johnson was an avid visitor of the Pleasant Grove website and constantly directed many others to it.  It is only fitting that we pause to pay tribute to him and to lend our prayers and support to his loved ones as they adjust to life without him in the flesh, but rejoice in his life in the Spirit.

Mr. Johnson was one of the greatest men I've ever had the privilege of knowing. He was so kind, it was unreal! God rest his soul until that great day!

Mr. Charles Johnson was one of a kind. His voice alone made him distinct and distinguished, but he was truly a Christian man.

If you look at the site's guest book, you will see that Mr. Johnson referred most of the people who signed it. He was everywhere, trying to do anything that would help somebody.

Mr. Johnson was my favorite teacher in high school because I beleive he genuinely cared about me. He took me to his church and into his home, and I grew to know and love his kids as much as I loved him. Everytime I saw him over the years, I let him know how much he meant to me. He will be greatly missed by me, Dephane Hayes!!

It is with great pleasure and yet with a heavy heart that I express with words of gratitude and of thanksgiving for all that you have done for our family in our time of grief. Your kindness, your prayers, and your words of encouragement have gotten us through this far. We request your continued prayers and keep us in your thoughts as we continue the legacy of our father through our lives. Again I say, Thank you. Yours for Christ, Min. Stephen E. Johnson

Mr Johnson, had the sweetest disposition that anyone could ever ask for. He was one of my favorite teachers, and his sweet spirit will truly be missed.

My husband and I have known the Johnson's for over 30 years. At one time we shared the same pastor. He was a very nice man who had others at heart. We pray that Sister Johnson and the rest of the family be strong and appreciate the fact that God only loaned him to them and He just wanted him back. We love you Sister Regina!

Mr. Johnson was one of the most kindness and God loving men I know. I want to thank him for being there whenever my mom needed him. She could count on him for anything,like taking her up and down the dangerous highways to the doctor or being there just to talk to about all the pain she has accomplished over the course of her life. I want to say to the family, be strong for one another because your father is in heaven now. He lived the life that God wanted him to live. Look to the hills for which cometh your help b/c remember Mr. Johnson wants to see all of you again someday.

I worked with Mr. Johnson for six years in Oakland and for 17 years in Coffeeville. He was one of the most considerate, giving, and kind colleagues I have ever known. We also attended Yalobusha County Retired Education Personnel meetings together in recent years and everyone looked forward to his presence. He will be missed, but his life and his work speak for themselves-giving assurance that he will reap the harvest that all God's faithful laborers look forward to receiving.

Much love and many prayers are extended to Mrs. Johnson and the Johnson Family. Remember, he was 'Saved by Grace,' full of knowledge and wisdom that helped him make good 'Decisions'.  Let the Spirit comfort you and guide you to make him proud!

Mr. Johnson was a "gift" to the community. I know that he taught for over 29 years and during that time he touched many lives. I know the one thing he would like to be remembered is that he was first and foremost a "Man of God" He his disposition never changed.. He was always kind and considerate even to the most "unruly" student! He will be greatly missed by his family, church family, friends and the community as a whole.

Charles was very intelligent and always sent me e-mails that were way beyond my comprehension. I will truly miss him. I am praying for my sister Regina and all the children, his mother, the grandchildren and the rest of the family that God will hold them up and give them the strength they need to recover from this. I love him like a brother!

I will miss chatting with him on my way home from work - stuck in traffic. Talking to him always made the time pass so quickly.

I would like to thank everyone for your kind words and gestures concerning the passing of my Father-in-law. I can sincerely say that he was and is more like my dad than a father-in-law. Reading many of your thoughts, about my Dad, helps more than you may ever know. Once again, I would like to say thank you all. Please keep praying and giving us that part of him that touched your lives, because it is touching ours in so many ways. Thank you!!!!

I didn't get the pleasure of meeting Deacon Johnson in person, but from the wonderful things I heard about him from my friend, Cathy Williams, I felt like I knew him. I am so sorry for the physical lost, but we will see Deacon Johnson again in GLORY!

He stood in the place of missing fathers, distant role models, and absent mentors. Mr Johnson fulfilled a need in each life he encountered. Regardless of the message he had for you, he always concluded it with a compassionate, baby. I recalled numerous times he said to me, "Now baby, you know better than that".

Remember, in order to be present with the Lord, we must be absent from this earthly body. Mr Johnson still lives, he lives in us -each and everyone of us who was graced with his presence.

Oh, how I loved Mr. Johnson my godfather. I have known Mr. Johnson for so many years. My father died when I was six years old and Mr. Johnson later became my father. I could talked to him about anything anytime. He treated me like I was his daughter. He taught me in school and in church. When I got ready to shake his hand , he would say I want a hug and I would hug dad. I will miss the e-mails, talking to him on the phone,his big smile and visiting him. Whenever I had a problem all I had to do was talk to Mr. Johnson and I would feel better. He had so much wisdom and always gave good advice. He would always put others first. Dad I miss you so much, but I will never forget you. You will always be in my heart. I love you. I will see you in heaven oneday.

It is with great joy that we have come this far by faith and that saying seems so simple, but at this time in my life, it is so powerful. It was through my father that we have had so many doors opened for us because we were taught well on how to treat others. I would like to say thank you all for being there for us. If you only knew how much that did. I will petition God in prayer that he continues to give us all direction in this season of our life. The blessing of the Lord be upon you Pleasant Grove family. I bless you in the name of the Lord!
