Tomorrow is your birthday Van, and even though you are no longer with us, I will always remember you and the day I met you. I got to put my hands in yours at the Graman`s Theatre a couple of weeks ago and it was such a thrill for me. My friend reminded me when I told her I found your square Hey you got to met the real man, and he kissed you! Rest in peace my dear friend.

Marie LazzariNov 2, 2009

He was my idol - during my teen years. He was a hunk! Wish I had seen him on stage.

I love Van Johnson so much and was crushed when he died. It is sad that all of the Golden Hollywood stars are very old or dying. I heard Van Johnson say on TCM Thank goodness for the bobby-soxers. Without them I would be nothing. It is wonderful how he appreciated his fans unlike the stars of today.

Janet MacQueenApr 5, 2009

No matter his personal preferences if the rumors are true, he gave great joy to those who loved to watch him act. His portrayals were always of one who loves, one whose love makes him vulnerable How great a man to love..

Jane BiggersJan 9, 2009

It seems only yesterday I met Van and now it seems impossible for him to be gone from our visable senses...but I know he is in paradise. Schuyler, you have all of my heart felt condolences...

Marilynn FeelerDec 15, 2008

Hi Van, the only one who se picture graced my high school locker door in 1949. Still looking for that blond boy next door type and I am only 77yrs old..Maybe I can ask for anautograph later on,,Love, Marilynn

Al, in San DiegoDec 14, 2008

An alltime favorite has gone; but he will continue to have new fans as they become exposed to his great charisma and natural acting. Rest well, dear man! You gave your best; and we will always remember!

Bobbie ShaffnerDec 13, 2008

Oh, how much of a FAN I was of the great Van Johnson! He helped me through my rough times, as a young teen-ager, just by being there on the "silver Screen." Amazing, isn`t it, that someone you have never actually met, can have the effect of almost saving your life, just by his virtual "presence" and charismatic peronna on a movie screen. Van really did hypnotize a generation of girls who grew up in the war years, the WWII years of "The Greatest Generation." Van symbolized the boys/men of those years more than almost any other Hollywood Star. I am so grateful to have "known" him! Bless him, always.

deb budesaDec 13, 2008

My heart is breaking to learn of Van`s passing. He brought me so much joy over my life; my fondest memories include his dancing with Lucille Ball and his breathtakingly poignant work in `Miracle in the Rain`. Van, you were one of the great ones who could do it all: drama, comedy, song and dance. I`ll miss you with all my heart and pray for your eternal peace. I love you.
