Messages for the family

  • Heartfelt condolences to dear Dorothy and family. Warmly – Kelly

  • I will never forget all the times Mr. Johnson would stop in to say hi and chat with me when I was working and he had a service call at my company! He was always so nice to me! So glad our families got to know each other and become friends so many years ago. I pray God gives you comfort in good memories and may Mr. Johnson rest in peace Beth
