Sweet, Sweet, Johnes

Johnes Sawyer, the manager at Cafe' M inside the MMFA was taken from us this past Saturday morning. For the short time I was employed by the Museum, Johnes was such a joy to be around. I can still hear him say, "Girl,you so crazy!". He had a love for all of his customers, and had that same love for his job. For many people, Johnes was the reason they came to the Museum. His laugh was contagious! Johnes also worked for the caterer, Jenny Weller. When I decided she had to do the food for our wedding, I also insisted Johnes had to be there, too. He was more of a hit than the food. That's how he was though, people just loved him! I wish all of you could have known Johnes, he really was something else. Passionate about the arts and was even a little artsy himself. Johnes, you will be missed more than you know!
For those of you who knew Johnes, the artist Kay Jacoby is painting plaques in his honor. All proceeds will go towards helping the family with funeral arrangements. Click here to find out more.
