Uncle Johnny,

May you rest in eternal peace with the love of your life. I always thought you looked liked Kenny Rogers. Whenever I see a picture of him or hear a song of his , I will always think of you.

I hope you and Aunt Judy are dancing in the sky with the Angels.

Love ,
Jenn

Judy and I met Johnny at a dance on Patterson Park Avenue that her mother would allow us to go to on Friday nights. Of course Judy played hard to get for a couple of weeks but she finally agreed to dance with him. You could tell Johnny was smitten. He started coming to the house. At the time he was wearing. Red high Tennis shoes and it seemed like they turn the corner before he did but they were in style back then. I do believe did Johnny fell in love with Judy at first sight. He would’ve stood on his head if she had asked him to. He loved her with all of his being. They ended up getting married and it’s all history now. They don’t make men like Johnny anymore. He’s very much old school he is a very dedicated loving family man he is devoted to his wife his children his grandchildren, And his great grandchildren. He would do anything for his family. He has always been that way. He liked to act tough and gruff, but he is a big soft teddy bear and he just doesn’t want people to know . Johnny was like one of my brothers there was no Inlaw . When you love someone for 57 years they are straight family there’s no holds barred Johnny was family. I loved him, I i’m going to miss him and with all of my heart. I regret the fact that I have not been able to see him for several weeks and I understand with all of his illness the reasons why and then again may be God was preparing us for the inevitable. But I loved you John Martin and I will miss you until the day the The good Lord calls me home and I can join you and Judy. And what a glorious reunion that will be. I miss all of you so much. I love you fly high.
