My love of lawn care started with my Uncle Johnny. I remember vaguely when I was very little Uncle Johnny push mowing my Grandmother Sally's grass. At the time I thought to myself he is the hardest working man I've ever seen. I'm not quite sure how that sticks out in my mind but it does. I couldn't have been much older than 6 or 7 years old. There are so many memories of him that will forever be in bedded in my heart. Some just simple things he'd say in passing. I am a better man for knowing him. I will always hold a special place in my heart for Uncle Johnny. God Bless and RIP Uncle Johnny. Gone but never forgotten. Until we meet again I love you always.
