Uncle Sid,
As I always called you, we weren’t blood related but I don’t think that would’ve even mattered! I wanted to thank you in the behalf of the Charlie Johnson family! You were my daddy best friend and with me when he passed.. you were there for my whole childhood from fixing breaks, to hiding my Christmas presents for my dad, to helping me move, or even some sound advice! Men like you don’t come around often.. I’m glad I had a chance to know what were men are through you and my dad! Thank you for everything, I’ll look out for aunt Vera just like you looked out for me for my dad!

Love you always!
Apryl Johnson
