October 5th 2009 -- Old Soldiers Never Die

The day began with clouds, drizzle and gray sky. About 9am it cleared, the sun came out, the Earth warmed, and the day began on a beautiful note. I took John on one last ride in his beloved 1956 Chevy. The service began shortly after 11am and the crowd was large. It was wonderful. The military tribute to John was so nice and honorable. He would have been proud and so pleased. After the service most friends and relatives met at Cloverleaf Clubhouse for a delicious lunch, conversation and visiting before returning to their homes. The room was filled with love, respect, pride, and the spirit of our Heavenly Father. To all that attended, thank you for making the effort to show respect to John E Johnson. To those that could not attend perhaps the pictures will give you a feeling of the day. I am proud that I was in John's life for 26 years, through many trials and tribulations -- but also many joys and pleasant times. He was a good man and he will be missed forever.
Until later, patj
