8 years ago today


We have to give honor to our DAD today.. Nelson P. Johnson. Hard to believe its been 8 years -- 8 years sounds like a long time but because you are so close in our everyday thoughts it seems like you never left us.... We both know that our creative side definitely comes from you.

Dad enjoyed his life to the fullest. He was passionate about so many things. He was a gardener, photographer, general contractor, and entertainer who enjoyed laughter and the lighter side of life. His curious nature led him to study birds, animals, people and politics.

We think of you often, but that is nothing new. Your memory is a keepsake, from which we will never part. God has you in his arms~We have you in our hearts.

Though you and your family may at times be overwhelmed by his absence; Thank God you can then be comforted by the memory of his smile, his humor and all of the things that made him so dear.

Hugs to you and yours.

Your Dad seemed like a great man. It's good to have such warm memories to cherish when a loved one is gone. You are both very lucky indeed.
