  • My memories of Johnny will always be remembered in my heart. We shared so many great times together that I will cherish forever. I have a love for Johnny that no one will ever take away from me. He was not only a cousin, but a true and sincere friend. I could tell him anything, as he did with me. Years ago, I inherited a black cat from Johnny. He desperately wanted me to give her a home!!! I became very fond of the cat for five years. Her name was M.J. Johnny was so happy we chose to give her a home. She lived like a princess. I was so looking forward to a visit from Johnny here in the Niagara region. He hoped to one day get out here to see us. I'm sure he will go any place he wants now. Perhaps he is here now, sailing on the wings of an angel with auntie Lena, over looking the beautiful sight of the spectacular Niagara Falls. RIP sweetie...I will miss you so much. Love MERTSKI
