Wow. Husband doesn't know who he was, but of course, since I worked in radio and journalism for such a long time, I was shocked by this. I remember hearing him on the radio and meeting him at a public appearance. Very sad.
Food is my favorite.

My dear two friends of 35 years. Donnie and Jackie Johnson.  I don't know the details yet, but they were a wonderful couple and good companions to me/us.  Back in the day, we motorcycled to several states with the two of them and a small group of folks, did some camping, did some exploring and really became attached.  They have a long legacy of being an innovative and fun couple to be with.  Our last visit was to Fox Bros. not too long ago.  I will certainly miss them both.

Have you ever listened to someone for a while and wondered, who ties your shoelaces?

You can't do epic shit with basic people.

Sorry to hear that, Mike. Losing friends is tough, but it makes you appreciate the friends you still have all the more. Everybody here cares about you, and wants you to know we appreciate what you do.

Sorry to hear that, Mike. Losing friends is tough, but it makes you appreciate the friends you still have all the more. Everybody here cares about you, and wants you to know we appreciate what you do.

The funeral is over.   An amazing crowd gathered at the memorial service last night estimated to be 450-500 folks, a huge gathering that had to take tickets to speak in front of the crowd about this couple.  They truly did touch a lot of folks.  Today's funeral was a bit tamer with 125 folks crowded into that small funeral home in Dawsonville. 

They are gone but not forgotten.   I see some kind of memorial being built in the future for Mr. Donnie Johnson.  Of course folks don't know that Jackie did the paperwork for his projects, kept him on budget and was his personal assistant in all things clerical.

I sortof want to list his accomplishments somewhere but perhaps this is not the place.  My crying is over, I was a mess last night and could have been today if someone had started me off, but I kept my composure, with Deanne at my side we sat in the front near the family to wave these two fine folks on to their next stage.

So while I was "gone" did I miss anything ?
