Nuestro más sentido pésame para toda la familia, es muy triste que mi amor haya perdido a su abuelo. Que Dios lo tome en sus brazos y lo lleve al paraiso. Mi corazón está ahora y siempre contigo.

John Carney was one of my closest friends in life. I’ve been crying all day. I’m really gonna miss that rascal ! I always admired how tough life got for John, he always had a smile on his face and was upbeat and positive ! I will forever miss him and hold him dear to my heart. He will live forever in me.

John was always eager to share! Whether it was something he had, wild stories of his life's adventures or new fun to be had. I will always remember the silly fun times I had with him. We had such a blast singing some of his favorite songs at the VFW. He definitely had life "Like a Tiger by the Tail" and an infectious smile like "The Girl on the Billboard".

Dear Carney Family, I think of Johnny a lot at Christmas time. He is part of my memories of Christmas at Grandma Blanche’s house. You never knew when members of the extended family would show up, which made the time more exciting and special. Johnny came in with a smile on his face excited to see “Aunt Blanche”. Praying for you all today, Michelle Carney Pounds (Danny’s Daughter)
