Its so sad to hear of your passing we will miss you so much. You were an amazing actor. What movies you made. There never be another Van Johnson may you rest in peace. I will always be thinking of you when I watch my two favorite movies of 30 Seconds Over Tokoy and Miracle In The Rain.

VAN I MISS YOU VERY VERY MUCH.

GOD SAW YOU GETTING TIRED
AND HE DID WHAT HE THOUGHT WAS BEST
HE PUT HIS ARMS AROUND YOU AND SAID
COME AND REST

HE OPENED THE GOLDEN GATES ON THAT
HEART WARMING DAY
AND WITH HIS ARMS AROUND YOU YOU
GENTLY SLIPPED AWAY

IT BROKE OUR HEARTS TO LOSE YOU
BUT YOU DID NOT GO ALONE
FOR PART OF ME WENT WITH YOU
THE DAY GOD CALLED YOU HOME

For Van...

You left so many great
movie moments. R.I.P.

WEEP NOT FOR ME


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.

I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.

Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.

Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.

Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.

I must be Van's biggest fan as
I watch two or three of his movies almost every day. He is the greatest,and will be greatly missed. May he rest in peace.

I was a young kid in the late '60's and early '70's when I started catching Van Johnson's MGM movies on weekend afternoons. His charm, wit, ability to entertain whether comedy or drama, I was fascinated and developed a subtle crush. Years later when I saw Purple Rose of Cairo at the theater I was suprised and elated to recognize Van in the film within a film. The gentleman exuded class and charisma whether on the screen or in an interview. Hearing he passed gave me pause to reflect on what he'd meant to me growing up.

I was really inspired by this classy gentleman in the movies as I grew up in the 50's and the 60's and still enjoy catching him on the movies of old today. He was one of my favorites of that bygone era. A real class act!
