On June 4th, Bradley Robert Johnson was
at Trinity Lutheran Church in Rolling Meadows. The Confirmation service is where Brad commits himself to the Christian faith following 4 years of instruction held at the church. He, along with his other 5 class mates, were confirmed at the 9:30 am Service.
Along with our immediate family, Brad had many other well wishers who joined him at the church service to mark his accomplishment. The big group is shown to the left.
His God parents, Bob & Gail Moran were there along with their 2 youngest daughters, Mary & Bridget. His Aunt Laurie, Aunt Jean & Aunt Nancy with assorted children also were on hand. In addition Aunt Joyce, Mrs. Lee and others including Ben's girlfriend Tracy, and Stonewall's girlfriend Brookie honored Brad with their presence.
Also we were happy to have new friend Sandeep join us. Sandeep is a new arrival to America that has been coming to our church having attended a Lutheran church back in his native India. We were all too glad to include him on Brad's great day.
Picture lower right is of Brad with Pastor Allen Belanger, followed all the way on the bottom of the page by a snap of the 4 Johnson Boys looking pretty handsome - and grown up. Following the service, we had a party for Brad celebrating The 'Trifecta' of celebrations going on in his life over the span of the next 3 days:
Brad is Confirmed (Sunday 4th)
Brad Graduates from London Middle School (Tuesday 6th)
Brad Turns A Whopping 14 years old (Tuesday 6th)
He got plenty of great gifts but the most memorable was his own monogrammed, inscribed bible from his Grandmother and Grandfather in Florida. Thanks Mom - it is beautiful.
