K, Just got word maybe ten minutes ago.
A homeless man, a vietnam veteran I had helped out some months ago.
Wasn't much, some cloths, some food, some kind words and after that.
A few months later, I helped him out with some tires and rims.
Put air in is bicycle tires once, maybe twice.
Name was Johnny and he passed away last night.
I have to say, I'm really struck by the news.
I guess because everytime I saw him he was a
such a happy soul. Anyway I'm gonna miss that guy
be'n around. And just thought I'd do this much for him.
Good on you for celebrating Johnny's life. People we mix with and then they are gone -- they should mean more than the brief words of their
passing. Who was he? What did he do, believe in, who did he touch with his insight?
If you are a musician, I think a song would be in order.
Johhny was a lucky man to have made a friend out of you. The fact that this mans passing has affected you says volumes about your character. I
could almost guarantee your life is fuller & brighter by the things you did & the kind words you have expressed for this "friend"
