Supreme Sacrifice: Colorado County's World War /I Dead
Hutchins' sister, Fay, wrote a poem in memory of her brother, "Johnnie I
Remember," which was published in the Eagle Lake Headlight on April 28, 1944.
It was our last goodbye
But I didn't know that,
And so I didn't cry.
How could I when you wore such a happy smile?
Did you think it might be our last goodbye?
Johnnie, can you remember?
I close my eyes and I can see you
Smile at me as you did that day.
Your eyes such a heavenly blue.
Your hair, so blond and wavy.
Oh! how plain I can see you,
And Johnnie I remember.
Sometimes I have a very happy thought.
Because I think I am a lucky girl.
That's what knowing you has brought.
You've given me your love
And made me happy.
It is a very pleasant thought
For Johnnie, I can remember.
And now they tell me you are gone
I know it isn't so.
For when anything goes wrong,
I'll say, "Johnnie what would you do?"
It seems as if you are beside me-
I am not alone
Because Johnnie, I remember.
Yes, Johnnie, I remember you
And all the things you said and did.
You always were so honest and true.
No one ever had a better brother,
To make their skies so blue.
Johnnie, I'll always love
And remember you.
Here’s what’s next.
