No Shoot - Johnny's Legacy
St. Petersburg, Russia As Michelle, Jim, Mike, Elaine, and Peyton knew!
At this time last year - late July - I was planning my younger Brother's final arrangements. When we cleaned out his apartment, we came across several t-shirts which summed up Johnny's life - he was a "Dot Rat!" and proud of it. Sometime after the ashes were either buried in Raynham or scattered around Ronan Park, one of his friends petitioned the Red Sox to honor him. Sam (no relation) Kennedy sent this touching response:
This week's "Wise Saying" summed up Johnny's life as we were quite taken back by the number of friends who came to pay their respects. Even today, his Facebook page is kept "alive" by them!
