Javon Johnson came into my life as my bonus son while he was in Nashville! A lot of folks loved and cared for him and tried to show him while he was here! He would have Eric call me just to say ” Hi mom, I love you “, then he and Eric Darrett would proceed to joke around and act silly! He became family while playing with DCB and it was on and popping at that point! Once, my child, you’re always my child regardless of anything! Son RIP ALWAYS! Love you forever!
