    If my memory serves me correctly, I served as the mailman for Route 2,
    Hazen, from 1989 to 1996 and I had served as sub carrier before that. I was blessed to meet such wonderful people as the Uhiren families and other
    fine families of the Slovak community. Mr. Johnny and Ms Linda were always cordial, friendly, and helpful. He had a smile for everyone. We will cherish our memories of him. Our prayers continue for Ms. Linda and the family. May God’s Word and His Holy Spirit (the “Comforter”) provide strength, comfort, assurance, and peace in this time of sorrow.

    I am a Eucharistic minister from Christ the King Catholic church. I am going to miss seeing Johnnie on my visits to Baptist Hospital on Fridays. Seeing Johnnie from the time he entered the hospital until this last Friday. He always reacted to my presence, knowing and wanting to receive Holy Communion when able. As time passed it became a prayer and he always reacted to his love of the Lord. Linda was always present and there for Johnnie, looking after his well being.

    I have been blessed to have met this couple and now prayer for Johnnies welcome into the loving arms of Jesus. May he rest in peace.
