      Sue, your in our thoughts, I’m so sorry for your loss of your last brother. I remember the many nights that I spent at your house when we all 3 were teenagers, Jackie was always fun to be around, I loved you both, and I know you will miss him dearly.

    It’s been a little over a week since we had to say goodbye. You’re friendly “HI THERE” greeting, jokester personality, brutal honesty, and seeing the way you made my kids faces light up when they saw you is greatly missed.
    Love & Miss You Papa Jack,
    Lisa Johnson
