This has been a rough week. I can’t believe it has been a year that you have been gone. As the tears flow on a daily basis, I try to remember the fun times, the happy times. It’s not always easy. I miss you Johnny. You could light up a room with your smile and your laugh. I think back when we were all young and Mary, Michelle and I would lock you and Tommy out of the basement so we could pretend we were rock stars. You and Tom would go upstairs and try to drop things down the heating vent and make us laugh. I miss that we are never going to be able to all hang out together again. I know you are in a better place and that you have found the peace you were looking for. When I look at the stars I think of you and I know you are watching down on us. Shine on John!!
