So terribly sad you are gone. Each time I came home to CA., I was blessed to have time with you and Aunt Rosemary. Then she and mom passed and last year and it was just you and me. You shared so many stories about family, Patterson, the military, and many other topics. I will miss our visits so much. I am glad I got to tell you how special you were to me, how much I love you and how much I would miss you. I cried telling you and you told me not to cry, but you cried too. A little part of my heart is gone. I pray we see each other again. Love you Uncle Johnny!!
