Johnny Abrams

John "Johnny" Abrams and I grew up in the same neighborhood in Centralia. Like all of the guys, John loved sandlot baseball and such. We both attended Central School (now the Centralia Junior High School). John was a real "All-American Boy. After high school graduation, John enlisted in the Marine Corps to serve his country. Johnny made the supreme sacrifice but his family and friends will never forget him. John Abrams represents the best in America--a courageous, kind, thoughtful man whose actions spoke louder than words. God bless you and rest in peace, old friend.
