Synopsis

I want to dedicate this book to the man who showed me what it is to be Chicago through and through. Johnny became a very good friend of mine one of the best I ever had in my life. He was hard on me sometimes, but over time, we became close and talked every day about all points of our lives to one another. I felt that the man truly trusted me, and I was lucky to have met a person like him. For him to get close enough to me and show me that beyond the asshole on the inside, there was a very loving, caring and big hearted man who would do anything he could for the people he loved. He kept a very slow bar open using his own money from his Chicago water department retirement when things were not up to par, just to make sure that we, his adopted family, had jobs. Partly in my opinion, it was for all of our benefits. For those of us who needed the job, he kept it open, and for himself, he enjoyed having our company. I honestly believe the man loved us all like family. Johnny: I love you buddy, I will miss you and think of you the rest of my life. I have so many stories of the days that You and I spent together. The event of your death got me off my ass and motivated me to write this book that I have had in my head for over a decade now. I hope you are resting in peace dear friend, and thanks again for believing in me and giving me all that you gave.
