Grady Hospital, Atlanta, Georgia

My best friend, Donnie Johnson, living in Lithonia, Georgia, has died.

Grady Hospital in Atlanta, Ga, took a healthy, 64 year old male, with a hernia issue, ignored the hernia issue, put him on a ton of other medications, claiming not to know what was wrong with him, and now, after many months, has finally killed him.

I hope everyone who had their hand in the situation is happy!

Donnie, may God hold you in the palm of His Hand….You are sorely missed!
