They called us the three Musketeers, the three Amigos or the brothers.
We called ourselves friends.
We met as rookies and came up together through the ranks to veterans.
Together we ran a million miles and had just as many laughs.
Pushed through bad weather, marveled at a perfect sunset and as others slept we rode the moonbeams in search of yet another sunrise.
For those who knew you, there will now be some emptiness in those times.
The hard miles are behind you now.
Rest in peace my friend and watch over your brothers as they search for yet another sunrise.

What a terrible loss. I have lots of fond memories of all the Johnson boys from when we would go visit Aunt Janice and Uncle Charles. Kenny was one of the nicest and kindest boys. I heard lots of kind words and funny stories of his life from Shari, Val, and Greg. (The fantastic 4) lol. My heart goes out to Sari her family and the Johnson family for there loss.
