The Johnson boys were famous when I was in high school. Chris was always so polite and a good friend to this farm “hick” ! When I was single and had my house improved with a community development grant Ken Johnson was my plumber and still is and that’s been more years than we can remember. Great family carried on from the teaching of your parents.
God embrace you and give you comfort and peace. Know that you are the proud examples your parents have left behind for us to enjoy.your parents did a great job and we are proud to call you friends and pray for Gods peace. Respectfully, Debbie, Jerry and Miss Ebony
