Connie Johnson Dies Age 40: Samuel Johnson's tribute

Connie Johnson, the sister of Australian actor Samuel Johnson, has died at age 40 after a long battle with cancer. 

Her family posted a message on Facebook sharing the tragic news.



“We lost Connie today. Or, as she asked me to say, she died of cancer today. It was so beautiful. We laughed, we cried, we sang stupid songs from our childhood to her, which she loved (mostly!),” her brother Samuel Johnson wrote.
“I read her so many village messages, which she relished. She went so richly, and with such grace. Trust me, she was genuinely cushioned by your love, till the end.”
Samuel said he was “sad and sorry” about her death but “extremely grateful and proud."
“I’m off to cuddle the fam and warmly embrace an exquisite whisky, in memory of my sister, who did so bloody well, from start to finish. Thanks for everything, Connie Cottonsocks. It was my pleasure to be your Sammy Seal.”
The Johnson family have built a tribute wall at loveforconnie.org

Smart people helped me build a place for us villagers to share our confusement. Please leave your tributes there, so our family can keep them forever? www.loveforconnie.org

I'm sad and sorry to be the one to tell you this, yet at the same time, as the Chief Custodian of my sister’s legacy, I also feel extremely grateful and proud.

I'm off to cuddle the fam and warmly embrace an exquisite whisky, in memory of my sister, who did so bloody well, from start to finish. Thanks for everything, Connie Cottonsocks. It was my pleasure to be your Sammy Seal.

Thank fuck for this village. See you on Connie's tribute wall we built. xsammy
