To The Johnson Family;
I met alot of you in the ICU waiting room at Lane. My husband was in there at the same time your mother was. Your family touched me. I have thought about ya'll alot since my husband was blessed to leave the ICU. Your mother must have been an extraordinary woman. I can tell that by the love of family, the loyalty, the love I witnessed in such a short time. Reading all of her messages I can tell that she was so loved and a child of Christ. I know in my heart she will be waiting right next to the Lord to give each of you a hug only a mother can give. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
PS. I got me a new purse, if I see any of you again, I am going give you mine..the memory of your mother, bright and cheery!

To The JOHNSON FAMILY;
Our greatest sympathy goes out to your family at this time in the mourning of the lost of your Mother. Mrs. Leola was a loving person. Every time I've seen her, she was always smiling. She may not have known my real name, but she knew I was Elmo Lewis' daughter, and I appreaciated her for that. Family look to the hills, because that is the only place you will find comfort. And as you go back to your daily lives, constantly continue to pray and GOD will strengthen you. May the peace og GOD be with you now and always. The Pierre Family
