  1. To my Dad, thank you for always protecting me whenever life was not going as planned. You instilled in me one of the greatest bible verses ever written John 3:16. You gave up your life so that I by God’s grace and mercy shall in return begin my life journey to protect Cory to the best of my ability and be the best father to Cory that I could ever hope to be and show Cory the way through his journey in life. You always made certain that Chris and I had everything we needed to survive in this crazy world of uncertainty. I always known how much that you loved and cared for us 5 Hart boys. Thank you for being my Dad and always know how much I Loved You through bad times and good times. I am so proud to be your Son. Heroes never die and legacies always get remembered. Your my Hero and my legacy. Thank you dad for the last breath, we will see each other again one day, but not just yet. I Love You Dad

    Chris, Brad & family,
    Many thoughts of comfort& prayer to each of you during this time. I know the pain of losing a parent having lost both of mine in the last few years. Know it won’t get any easier, but know he is there in your hearts forever & watching over you. You will find times, when you know he is there…Some of my best memories of Mr. Johnny were summers at the river… He always made me laugh & have a smile on my face. May God give you the comfort that only he can during this time. God Bless you all…
