Mabel Johnston, Daniel's mother, passed away Wednesday afternoon, 9/16/10.
Our heart felt prayers and good intentions go out to Daniel, his father Bill, and to the Johnston family.

There will be a funeral at the church of Christ in Katy, Texas on Sunday.

this is a terrible loss to the world. Mabel Johnston was one of the most beautiful hearts to ever walk among us...and she gave us Danny. Hope Danny's holding up well through this.
Very sad news indeed.

Mabel is now one of Dan's angels... 

When I met her, after a few days, she told me, "you're so easy to love..."...I knew she hoped I would stay...and 'be there for Dan."
She could see that he and I got along 'easily,' but she never knew it was mainly because I have a severely manic depressive older sis, and there was nothing about Dan that would feel strange to me.

Easy to love...that was Mabel.

She loved Dan through so much...she always knew he loved her and was just dealing with his life; and, he knew she loved him, always.

Easy to love....I felt so honored to hear that from such a sweet woman, one who was TRULY 'easy to love.'

She also asked me if I believe in God.

I felt she was quizzing me, to be sure it was okay with her to try to encourage me to 'choose Dan'....which she did later, while we were alone, telling me that Dan liked me and needed someone...It was hard to see her wanting so very much 'someone for her baby'....and, to know I was not going to be 'that someone' ...

About the answer to her question...at the time - I was 100% intellectually agnostic, but I could NOT say no to her...
I could not 'disappoint her,' or make her feel uneasy...
She was so fragile physically...and SO loving and trusting....so very 'easy to love'...

So, I said yes (in my heart, I was telling myself that I believed God to be pure love, so it was okay to say yes...).
Then, she said, "God in Heaven?"
After hearing an internal, "wow...", I answered "Yes," with a compassionate smile...

Mabel, I never got to tell you that, 4 years or so later, I now DO believe in God...God in Heaven...
but, I also know now that you already know that...because you are with God now...

Perhaps the service will include the joy for those who are still on this human plane of existence, that she is now able to be a mother to all...from 'the great beyond' ...

She had a hard last few years...she has been released.
With much loving sympathy from my now-God-in-Heaven-loving heart to Dan, who is also 'so easy to love,' Dick, her husband Bill, and all of the Johnston clan,
Gina

I met Mabel several times. Once I took her flowers and she had Bill put them in her "Prettiest vase" and she later brought me and my wife a apple and some cookies. She even gave Dan the business for a second which tickled me, she was without a doubt the "best girl in the world" as Dan said to me once!

I hope your grivances have been heard Mabel! You were a star just like Dan!
