    OLSON asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. OLSON. Mr. Speaker, this morning, the Texas skies were not as big and they weren't as bright. We lost Shirley Johnson, the wife of our hero and our colleague, Sam Johnson.

    They were high school sweethearts and were married for over 65 years. The entire 8 years that Sam was being tortured in Hanoi, Shirley kept a seat at the family dinner table for Sam. She knew Sam would come home.

    Sam came home broken and battered. He worried, how would his family react to the new Sam? As you can see, Sam had nothing to worry about. Led by Shirley, he was swarmed with love back home in Texas.

    Shirley is now among the heavens, and those Texas skies tonight will be as bright and big as ever.

    God bless Shirley Johnson.
