My condolences to Johnny's family at this sad time. I grew up next door to Johnny and his family on South Side. If my memory serves me correctly, Johnny was the first one to get the cookies when his Mom came from the store.I think it even got to the point of her hiding them from him! May he rest in peace

It is with deep sympathy we bid Uncle John farewell. We often speak of our loss when a loved one dies, and it is true we lose their physical presence in our lives and they are no longer here to hold or hug; but are they really lost? Our faith assures us death cannot overcome love. The bonds of love which unite us endure as we join our loved ones in the Communion of Saints. Our loved ones are not lost; they are with God, who is love. It is good for us to recall with gratitude our loved ones with whom we have shared our life. Yes, we may still experience the sadness of their loss, even after many years; but we should also recall the joy we had in their presence and the roles they played in our lives. I am told Uncle John never said No to Dan, and this is something Dan speaks of often. As for me, although I did not spend a great deal of time with Uncle John, whenever I was in his company, he was always polite and respectful to me. He was always generous with his club winnings, whether it be a huge bag of candy or his most recent gift of a remote control fan, he was thrilled to pass it off to us. Thank you, Uncle John for openly sharing with us. We know you are now pain free and resting in the presence of the Lord. Until we meet again, look over us and and your family, and be that guiding light we all need. We love you.
