My Son, when you came into my life on Nov. 3, 1984 it was an indescribable day, when I first heard your cry and seen your face I knew that GOD had blessed me. As you grew your love for your family grew. Then you had your son, Joseph Albert Johnson. As he is a large piece of you, you will always live on. You gave your love and strength to him and now he is sharing it with all of us. Ryan when you left you took a big piece of me with you. You are and will always be my first born, you are the one that got it all started.
Ryan you are now at peace, not hurting any longer and that helps me to be at peace as well. But I am having a hard time dealing with the fact that your gone, that the only way I will ever see you or hear your voice again is in Heaven, through pictures and video's. Joseph is my strength and I will lean on that until I see you again.
I WILL ALWAYS LOVE AND MISS YOU...YOUR MOTHER"
