I cannot find the words to describe my feelings with the loss of Johnny. He will always be "Johnny" to me. I
remember when he was born, when he graduated, when he married and, now, when he passed away. Consolation
comes in knowing he is with his mom and dad and, especially, Granny. Losing family and friends is the hardest part
of growing old. Johnny, be at peace. One day we will all be together again and stroll down memory lane.
