My family and I have wonderful memories with you at Good Shepard! Of course Mom and Dad attended many basketball games as loyal followers at Michigan. Now Dad is with your husband and father, still cheering him on! Our family's thoughts and prayers are with you.

I would never forget those days in the late 40's at Beloit,the Sigma Chi Fraternity, and fun times. Also, the visit with Johnny and Romie and some weekend golf in Dubuque,Iowa. Great guy, great couple.

It's probably difficult for outsiders to understand the heartache we Cyclone fans feel over the loss of our beloved Coach. It's impossible to explain to them what it was like to be in Hilton Coliseum for Johnny's fist-pumping entrance - or after a big win when he would look at the crowd and raise a fist in celebration. I would run to the car after games just so I could listen to Johnny and Pete on the radio. Good or bad, Coach called it as it was - praising good play but never sugarcoating a bad loss. And we loved him for it. Johnny was larger than life, but always had time to talk to a fan. I had the privilege of visiting with him briefly after his retirement, and my autographed copy of "Here's Johnny" is one of my prized possessions.

I know that the loss I feel is nothing compared to what you, his family members, are going through. Thank you so much for sharing your husband, father, and grandfather with us all these years. I hope that the outpouring of love from Johnny's friends, colleagues, players, and fans brings you some measure of comfort. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
