A very sad day...Johnnie Palan (Chad's Mom) is in heaven now - RIP

My good friend Chad Palan called me this morning to say that his mother passed away, SB user "JustMom". For those who knew her she was a good woman, a great mother and grandmother. When i picture her it is with big smile on her face at the boat ramp early am's cheerful and ready to drive the boat for us. She supported Chad through everything, at all his spearfishing events and always dependable when we needed a driver in 3-5ft seas.
Please put Chad, his family and mother in your prayers. I will miss you mom.

Oh my..... that is terrible news.

Johnni was an amazing woman and a salty character who loved the ocean and her son Chad.

She encouraged and supported him at my tournament and his many other activities. She recently joined Spearboard as the screen name Just Mom.

She was a super MOM to more of us than just Chad. May she rest in eternal peace.

My condolences to you Chad. I lost my mother years ago and know the hole that is in your heart.

Peace brother. Tony

Here is a pic I just found of Johnni with Chad and friends at the 2011 Blue Wild.

Note that Chad is smiling.

That sucks. She was so passionate about fishing and helped Chad so much. They had a very good son and mother bond.

Re: A very sad day...

I'm so sorry to hear this. She used to email me dive pictures of Chad all the time.

Chad and family, I'm very sad for your loss. Your mom was so proud of you and everything you do.
