30 Gregorian Masses (1 each day consecutively for 30 days) were offered up for the repose of Casey's Soul at a Roman Catholic Church by a Franciscan priest in Ecuador beginning December 1, 2011.
Thank you for your continued prayers on behalf of Casey's soul.
Sale Trotter Case "Casey" Johnson was born to Nancy Sale Frey Johnson and Robert Wood Johnson IV on September 24, 1979 in Florida. As a toddler, her family relocated to New York where Casey would spend her formative years. During a routine medical check-up, Casey was diagnosed with insulin-dependent (Type 1) Diabetes. At 14, Casey co-authored a book with her parents entitled, Managing Your Child's Diabetes. Casey would go onto devote her time and efforts to raising awareness for a cure of this chronic disease including being on the committee for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation annual fund-raiser, The Promise Ball, held each November in New York. Casey attended the Chapin School and graduated from the Dwight School. Casey spent one year at Brown University. She then went onto work for a short time at Lizzie Grubman's publicity firm.
In 2002, Casey appeared as herself in the documentary, It Girls.
In 2003, Casey relocated to Los Angeles where she would appear as herself in The Fabulous Life of… and E! The True Hollywood Story along with doing some un-aired television work.
In 2007, Casey adopted a little girl from Khazakistan, Ava Monroe.
In 2008, Casey acknowledged her bisexuality and began to date women.
Like most 20-somethings, Casey spent that time trying to figure out who she was.
On Monday, January 4, 2010, Casey passed away from diabetic ketoacidosis.
Along with her loving parents, left to mourn her are Casey's younger sisters Jaime and Daisy, stepparents, two young half-brothers, relatives, friends and her most dedicated long-time companion, her dog Zoe.
Casey has left devoted girlfriends who remember her in daily thought and prayers.
Casey was a shy, gentle soul who had a great love for dogs, good conversation, fashion and most of all, those closest to her heart.
It is the fervent hope of her family and friends who miss and love Casey, that her early death may bring about not only a greater tolerance to those suffering from both mental health and substance abuse issues but also continued communication and ongoing research of them.
Death is nothing at all.
It does not count.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Everything remains as it was.
The old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
Call me by the old familiar name.
Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no sorrow in your tone.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effort
Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was.
There is unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.
All is well. Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before.
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting, when we meet again.
