Extremely saddened to hear of Johnny's passing. He was a very special person in my life. I have so many fond memories of beautiful days in Bradley Beach in which he added so much. He was so good about playing with (and tossing) little annoying girls in the surf! My sisters and I adored him, and his wonderful smile.
Eileen, please know that I will keep you and all of the family in my thoughts and prayers.
