Please pray for the repose of the soul of T.R. Johnson, who died yesterday morning, age 88.  If an obituary is published I will post it.  To my knowledge there is not going to be a funeral, per his request.


It is suspected that his "last words" involved saying hello to SB (big smile), and asking me what we were doing there.  Or some other question I couldn’t quite catch, and gave an answer that he probably didn’t understand, as I don’t shout well.  


Much more characteristic were his next-to-last words, the previous day, said to my brother-in-law, who was chatting up the nurse.  After she left, TR, retired navy and a bachelor himself, informed BIL, "Don’t waste your time on her.  Wait till you see the dish who works the afternoon shift."
