"I noticed today's your birthday, Johnny. I do hope you're having a GRAND time!"
I wish I could have made it to the celebration of his life. Johnny was pivotal in me re-connecting with my dad, John Brockway. We all know, sometimes people don't marry for one reason or another, but what a precious gift it was to re-connect through Johnny sharing my dad's WA address with me so many years ago! My eyes fill with tears, just thinking back. My best goes out to the Vavalis family, and all of his many, many friends. Sincerely ~ Rowena
