My dad, Albert Lee Walter Johnson, wife of Myrtle Sylvia, father of six daughters and one son. He rose to the rank of Lieutenant in the New York Police Department, Transit Division. I can see him now sitting at his desk writing checks or studying for a promotional exam. He wasn’t the type to compliment good grades; he questioned the lowest. At night, hearing his wood-soled heels against hard-wood floors gave me a sense of security knowing Daddy Bert’s home from work. Though he passed in 2013, at 89-years-old, he remains a model of consistency, responsibility, high expectations and diligence. Margo Johnson McKenzie
