So sorry to hear of Mr. Johnson's death. I only knew him for a brief time years ago. It was a brief meeting concerning some old barn wood. But that brief encounter left an indelible impression on me because of his kindness. In that short time I knew I was dealing with a gentleman. His body is gone but I am sure his memories will last forever.
