Johnny I always told you that you were my favorite brother in law. You would laugh and say Im your only brother in law. It didnt matter. I loved you with all my heart. You took care of my sister and you were good to her. She loved you so much. And we will forever love you. We will see you again one day. Rest in Peace Johnny.
