Uncle Johnny it's so hard to believe that you were called home 48 years ago. You were taken from your family and friends way to early. You were a very loving caring man not just to your family but friends as well. Even though I was a young child I can remember it like it was yesterday, you would come by the house and if I was outside it tickled you to scare me with the siren then afterwards you would come back to the house and hug me and tell me love ya punk. You taught us all how to be respectful and caring. I know you are happy having your Dad, your brother Larry and both your precious sister's Joan and Shirley with you. I miss and love you all very much. Looking forward to the day we will all be together again.
