Not sure what to say?

Me and John...UP Michigan...

I remember seeing your obituary 8 years sad I was to see you have passed....
"Don" here.....I remember us going to the UP...(a picture of us goofing around on this stage at a state park on lake Michigan)...I still have AWESOME memories of those times. Going to see Grand Funk Railroad with your brother when up there...such good times...
Most important for me....was that you turned me on to much older music...the 60's-70's...we were both music freaks and you...

To Johnny (Steele) Carley, I have WAY TOO many memories to list here. You and I have been through it all Man. Marriages, Divorces, Births, Deaths, Cops, New Bands YOU name it we were there together. My GREATEST memory though will be the day we left for Da U.P. der and I got my very 1st bee sting that day and my hand swelled up like a ballon all weekend, you dropping that puppy on it's head and how horrible you felt, throwing "forks" at seagulls and how friggin hard we laughed and...

“To My Daddy”

To the one that looks down from above.
We should have shared more truth.
I wish I could have expressed more love.
Now I talk to you like I was in a confession booth.
All of those things we talked about left a bit of closure.
Even though I hear things, I can’t help but think of the past.
Yet, all the things we didn’t cover, leaves some exposure.
So I remember the good, and let the rest go to cast.
When I was a...

I have so many good memories of Johnny...peering at me through "eyes" in pita bread at Oakland Gyros...our interesting Christmas tree on 31st street, then 8th street, then Harrison...moving all those albums!Taking the bus with Pam to the east side, in snow and hig-heeled sandals, to get to the shows because we didn't want to be there so early! The birth of Tyler, then Abby. Later years it was The Haven, The Unicorn...I met my husband there through Johnny...

Dale and Ethel and Family, We are deeply sorry for the loss of John. Our Prayers are with you that God will help you through this very sad time.

I grew up with John and went
thru school together. We had many good times. As we did things that nobody new about. Just him and I will ever know. There is just one thing I have to say he was a friend and a true one and you just don't find this now days. I look at John as a brother. I will miss you John. Lee

I am very proud of my father. Through thick and thin....I couldn't have asked for a better dad. One hell of a leader......I won't let you down.

To those who asked:

I just wanted to say that I'm Sorry for your loss. Johnny was a good friend in the past. It's been a few years, But the memories of the times we all spent together, Well we all had a great time. Johnny's style of music was just Great. I'm just sorry that I did not get to say good-bye to an old friend. We will miss you.

"So I sez to the guy"
I will never forget the guy that turned me on to Chicago Style hotdogs during packer games. He was truly a unique guy who always had a positive thing to say and always had something up his sleeve. A guy who was hard to hate and was hard to forget. Johnny could never stop talking about his kids and family and usually he just couldn't stop talking period. So many memories so little space. Good luck Johnny
