Not sure what to say?

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He...

Joe and family,
Sorry for your loss. May your father rest in peace.

I miss will miss you Emil.We all do here up in Haxäng Sweden

Emil, I will always be grateful for the $200. you lent us for a day, to close on our first house. Thank you for the start on buying our home. You were always full of joy, stories and ready for travel. Reg and I will miss your happy disposition. I can hear you talking and laughing. You made a lasting imprint on so many lives just by being the positive person you were. It was such a wonderful surprise when you would stop just to say 'hi' on a drive w a fiend, always extending an invite to us...

I just learned yesterday, we've all lost a good friend. I am so thankful Bob and I saw Emil just a few months ago. We are in Southern Ca., be home in April. Our thoughts to all. Bruce and Lois Fairchild Bothell, wa

you opening your Christmas present from sweden when we visited you last year (2010)

We will miss you Grandpa. We will even miss all your stories, even though they took a while to listen to, they were interesting and some even funny. Going with you to all sorts of gatherings were also pretty fun -once we got there! I´m so glad Jonathan and Nicole got to know thier great g-pa and they talk about having many memories of you. And i Grandpa have a great deal of both childhood and grown-up memories, but the best ones are the ones from helping out in the feild with the hay. I loved...

Emil has been a long time friend of all of us Johnson's. He knew our family history better than we did, he was a real historian. We will miss his humor, stories, friendly smile and friendship. Emil say hello to Dad and Grandma for me let them know we miss them. God Bless you my friend and my thoughts and prayers are with you Juanita and all your family.

Emil's friendly outgoing presence will truly be missed at functions of the historical society, where he was always eager to share a good story (and never lacked for one). I'm glad we were able to record so many for future generations.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Emil was such a nice man and I know he will be missed greatly! Katie, Maddie and Lee
