Wanda, Terry & Lynne,

I was searching the internet for genealogy information when I stumbled across your mother’s obituary. My heart goes out to all 3 of you – I know y’all miss her so very much.

I can remember coming to visit the family and riding that horse for hours! I always had a blast when our families visited!

I will keep all of you and your families in my thoughts and prayers –

your cousin,

Cheryl Fudge Johnson

I am so sad…she was like a Mama to me, too…it’s no coincidence we shared the same middle name and birthday, it was the design that God created for us. I will miss her sweet smile and personality. I will always be here for you, Lynne, if you need to talk or a shoulder to cry on. “A human life is a story told by God”. ~Hans Christian Andersen

Love you,
