Your father is the link to our being friends. Ill never forget move-in day at NIU you in your townhouse and me next-door in my townhouse and both of our dads were suspiciously missing. Turns out they were outside chatting because they both recognized each other from Saint Mary of Celle parish. You and I have been friends ever since. I will always remember the kind gentle thoughtful man your father was. He always had a kind word to share and was a true gentleman. My deepest condolences to you JACQUI and KAREN and the entire extended JOHNSON family. May your memories of your dad / grandpa always bring you joy.
