Dwayne Bowe may no longer be a member of the Kansas City Chiefs, but the team's fans still hold a special place in his heart, especially 86-year-old Betty Johnson.
Johnson has been a season ticket holder at Arrowhead Stadium since 1986, and Bowe had a custom of running over to the great grandmother and kissing her on the cheek before each home game, so when he heard she passed away, he flew out to Missouri "to give her the last kiss" Johnson's daughter Susan told KCTV-5.
In addition to speaking briefly at the memorial service, Bowe, who signed with the Cleveland Browns last month, sent a wreath along with a heartfelt inscription.
"You might have thought you were the Chiefs No. 1 fan, but in so many ways, we were yours. Thanks for making Arrowhead feel like home to me. I will continue to play my heart out for you. Kisses to you my special angel,"
Former kicker Nick Lowery visited Johnson at her bedside during her final days, according to KSHB-41.
