Memories Timeline


  1. I’ll never forget when Johan used to work at Ellendales, he knew my favorite thing there was the triple chocolate mousse cake. He would bring me a piece every chance he could. I will also remember his creative cooking skills. Boy did he have a passion for food, just like his mother. I love you guys and you are in my thoughts

  2. My heart aches for Julie and Mike. I’ve known you almost my whole life. And we even share a portion of it together. You were a kind hearted and compassionate human with so much potential. You were funny and off beat. You loved music. I’ll never forget our bright eyes concert. Or the drunk guy on crutches who punched you in the face. I have so many memories with you good and bad. I hate how this all ended. You were my first love for what I believed love was. I’m finding out almost a month later so I couldn’t come to your funeral. I’m sorry yo. My prayers are with your family!
