Cousin Johnny, we, too, will miss seeing you on that front porch when we arrived to visit from Buffalo. It was so great coming over to see you all the years and get rides in those Cadillacs. Now, you have the view from the great porch in Heaven. What that must be like!

I am so sorry to hear of your brother's passing. He and your family were such wonderful neighbors. They made us feel so welcome when we moved next door many years ago. I still can remember sitting with Johnny and them on that front porch. He is remembered fondly. Thoughts and prayers for you all.
