Mother honors son’s memory with free ice cream
It’s a hot day in Livermore, California. Children and their families are lined up in cars waiting to enjoy their free Mister Softee ice cream cone. A nearby lawn adorns a sign that reads: “In Memory. Dylan Johnson”. Veronica Johnson, Dylan’s mother, stands on the corner watching all the smiling faces. She organized the free ice cream drive-thru as a way to give back to her community and most importantly, honor her son.“Dylan only lived 25 months, three days. He was just a happy boy. He loved to smile and make people laugh. He loved ice cream”, Johnson shares, “it’s the 20th anniversary of his passing so why not do something big”.
