  1. I just want to turn around and walk back into yesterday. There’s so many things I would say to you. You have always been such a huge part of my life, an extension of our family really! You have been a part of every part of my life. You were always my mom’s favorite! You have always been Clay’s very best friend. Not too mention the best friend I found in you too!! To think of the tomorrows ahead makes me feel panicky inside – how are we going to do life without you I surly don’t know. But know Chester, that a day will never pass by that you won’t be missed! We shall never forget – IT AIN’T EASY BEIN CHEESY – May you RIP Chester!!!
    Strong thoughts a million times a day to all your family and friends feeling your loss!!
    Lara, Clay, Bonnie and the rest of your Johnson Family!!!

  2. I’m so sorry to hear of Jerry’s passing. I will never forget that one Halloween where he and Steve Lundberg were in one ditch Steve Schultz and I were in the other pulling a “dummy” across the road when we saw oncoming headlights. I recognized the next oncoming car as a cop and yanked the dummy onto my side of the road and Steve Lundberg pulling that thing back onto the road as the rest of us ran like our rear ends were on fire. We all ended up turning around and sitting in the back of the squad car. Another memory I will always have is the spirited “Dodge vs Chevy arguments Jerry and I would have on the school bus, the school bus, as neither of us were drivers, but neither of us were going to be wrong. It ain’t right to be gone at 44, but RIP Jerry.
