I miss my son Johnny soooo much. No one realizes what a beautiful person he was. He was funny & talented. I'll always have love in my heart just for him.

John was running because he was young & didn't want them to make a mistake at his expense. You shut up you dirty pig.

No one reads or writes on this page anymore which is good. I am John Kotiw's biological mother and I loved John with all my being since he was conceived. It sucks when strangers form an inaccurate opinion about someone they really don't know the truth about. Plus their kids are probably worse in every way that's why they're so eager to point the finger in another child's direction.

What's the matter, no one was paying attention to you? Had to resurrect this? If it's good that no one reads or writes on this page anymore, why bring this up? Needed to trash other peoples kids for no good reason? smh
