Tonight I found myself on Tremont Street, waiting to cross the street. I looked up and happened to notice the sign with Officer Johnson's name and the date of March 17, 1969 on it. I was curious to see what I could learn about him, and I found this page. Sounds like a true hero. How fortunate we are to have men and women who are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to keep the rest of us safe.

It's now 49 years. You are still honored here and you are still missed and loved by those who loved you best. The pain can never go away, but holding you in their hearts keeps you near. LOVE, never dies.

God Bless you Officer Johnson as you continue to Rest in Peace.

Thinking of you these past few weeks and especially on St. Patrick's day. Its been a hard couple of weeks, a Trooper, a father of six, (just like you) was killed, and a young officer from Falmouth was also killed in the line of duty. Many heroes among us Dad.

My family wishes to thank you, Ptl. Jim Leahy Jr. for your kind words and all the other officers that have left a reflection in our fathers' honor. He is and always will be our hero. God Bless all police officers and their families. I know my father would be proud to be BOSTON STRONG.

Today makes 46 years since your life was needlessly taken and as is obvious by the posts here, you have never been forgotten. It's both heart breaking and reassuring to read the posts from your daughter and relatives. It is proof that, so long as your memory is kept alive, you're never truly far from the hearts and minds of those who love you. You are and for ever will be a hero to those who loved you and those who never met you.

RIP, Brother.
