John expressed that he did not want a "traditional" funeral service nor viewing, but rather that his friends gather and rejoice in the time we had together.
As many of you are aware, Johnny used to be quite the barfly and was always the life of the party -- one tavern installed handles under the bar so John could "hold on" when the floor shifted underneath him (of course, it wasn't the floor doing the moving!)
Lux Lounge is owned by John's dear friend Karrie Laughton, who has generously donated the space for our use on Sunday. Of course, the bar's address being "666" also helps play up the flames and satanic imagery which John was such a fan of -- of course, all of us who knew John also knew that his tattoos, piercings and fascination with satanic imagery were not based in satanism; but rather simply an impression that got him attention while providing him a persona that was larger than life.
Please plan to bring photos and stories to share with everyone that highlight John's life and involvement in our lives. I hope to see you there.
Brittney will be there as well.
