True to our form, doing what we do best, Erin and I got tattoos last night in memory of our cousin, Johnny. It seemed like a very fitting way for both of us to commemorate his life. We each got a violet flower, his birth flower, on our foot.
Johnny was laid to rest yesterday, May 7th, 2009. The service was beautiful and it is a blessing to have been here with my family.
Thank you to everyone who has carried us in his or her thoughts. Your love can be felt from miles away.
Johnny was our Peter Pan when we played together as children, and now, as an adult, Peter Pan he shall remain: forever young and gone back to Neverland. The rest of us will play the part of Wendy. We’ll continue to grow older every passing day, and wait for spring cleaning, when Peter will come back to take us with him.
Rest in peace, John Losse, Jr.
