My Dad was the first man I ever loved! He always pushed and encouraged me to do my best at whatever I had going on in my life. This man was the most important man in my life. I am so lost without him!! There won't be a day that goes by that I won't be thinking of him. I love you Daddy forever and always!! Fly high with the angels, you finally got your wings!!

Vickie Johnson Posted at 12:21pm

Roger and I were married for 51 and a half years. He was the first man I loved except my dad. We went through so much; good and bad. I am so lost without him, it will take a long time to function normally again. I love you honey. Now you are with Robbie and Donna. Give our kids kisses . We'll be together again some day.
