Uncle Johnston was such a joy and caused much laughter during our get-togethers. He moved really slow and we, jokingly, called him "lightning."

Aunt Sade said he came to her in a dream where he entered their home, wearing his old straw working hat, and said to her, "You better get your house in order."

He knew he was sick for some time before he died and was bitter about it because ever once in a while he would throw a glass in the sink or throw a chair. The night he died, he had been working outside, probably in his garden, came in wet with sweat, paced a little bit and changed his clothes into his pajama bottoms. Aunt Sade asked him, "Johnston, you're not going to take a bath?" He said, "No, I'll wait until tomorrow." He continued to pace a bit, then, said he was going to bed. Aunt Sade was sitting in a chair reading, when she heard him call her. When she went to their bedroom, he was dead. People tell her there was no way he was able to call her as his "Heart had busted," but she said she heard him so it must have been an angel telling her that he was gone.
