Though we've never met, I was very close to Johnny, his mother, his stepfather, his grandparents, his great grandmother and sisters during my years in Alaska through the 60s, 70s and 80s and I was shocked to learn of his untimely death in the online edition of the News-Miner today. Though we lost touch after I left Alaska and John and Grace passed on, words can't express my profound sadness at his youthful passing. Please accept my deepest sympathy and convey my regrets to Leslye and Kristine when you see them. I will never forget the Butroviches and their precious extended family, of which I am proud to say I was one for many years, sharing many fond experiences with them on the "Goody" and elsewhere. I would be grateful if you could find time to drop me a note about Johnny's last years and days. Godspeed you and your family through a future filled with loving memories of your shared life with Johnny.
