    Dear Donna and family, So sorry for your loss. My boys and I really loved and enjoyed him. We have great memories of our times visiting the family home in Cali. He was so funny. Could always count on a laugh or two or three from him. I am not sure I have ever known a person with more knowledge, so intelligent. He was also very talented in his artistic abilities with cartoons and many other things. The last summer vacation we had with you Donna and Harold I asked him if he would paint on a rock for me. He did and it has always and always will be part of my decor. I loved how he landscaped with all his little paths and huge boulders. The family home was like going to a retreat. Jerry and Jesse have great memories of their Uncle and we will really miss him. But I know where he went and will look forward to seeing him again and having a laugh or two or three. Love Anita, Jerry, and Jesse Johnson.
