I was so sorry to read of Johns’ passing. I didn’t know him as an adult, only his childhood years. I spent lots of time with the whole family while growing up with MaryBeth. Going to movies and just hanging out with the family. It is a hard time, but it will get better with each day. Memories are a great thing to hang onto at this time of sorrow. Again, sorry for your family’s loss.
