So so sorry to hear of Johnny's passing. He was like family to me. We loved him dearly.
I'm going to miss you my dear dear friend.
Now you and Nell are together again, I know it was hard on you when she passed away she was the love of your life.
I'll always remember the times when we talked on the phone and Nell would always joke and say that I would wait till she was gone so I could call and talk to you.
Love, Pat and Lois Ann Jeffrey Mooney
