  8. Our dearest Johnny, you always put a smile on my face, whenever we chatted, you never complained about your health, not wanting to worry your family, your love for your family was immeasurable. It was my pleasure along with Andrea, to do your eulogy at your funeral, and what a great send off it was. Fly pain free, until we meet again.
