John Ryan Garrighan
Johnny was the best person, let alone brother, anyone could ask to be graced with in their life. Johnny died young, two months before his 28th birthday, but lived so much! The saying goes, everybody dies but not everybody lives, gratefully, boy did Johnny live! No matter what the situation was you could not laugh when in the prescense of my brother. I am so grateful for the millions of memories he has left me with. Even though he is no longer with me in body, I feel secure to have him as my gaurdian Angel watching over each and every day. There was never a day that went by that he wouldn't call to say he loved you or "he got your back". Love and family were the most important things in this crazy world to him. In memory of him, my mother, other brother, and I run an outpatient treatment center and dedicated our lives to helping others. I thank Johnny everyday for allowing myself to recognize the true meaning of life. My goal is to truly live and see him again one day... we sure will have a lot to talk about!
