Our canoe group met Mike and Misty in 2001 at the River Ranch in Noel, Mo and over the next 14 Labor Days we all became fast friends. There were lots of laughter and fun times at their campsite. It was always "Nothing but a good time" when you were with the Johnson's! My most heartfelt condolences go out to Mike and all of Misty's family. You will always be missed but never forgotten Misty. May you rest in peace.

Misty taught me how to make chicken and dumplings. It is a family favorite and my kids will forever be thankful for the night Misty set aside to teach me how to make them! Thank you for being a friend when I needed one. I still remember our dinners at Centerton Inn when Abbie was a baby. Taken too soon, you will be missed!!

I met Misty in grade school when she, Suzy and her Mamma moved to Chanute. Many times of walking to the pool and stopping by to visit with her bonus family of friends. We became instant friends and remained that way long after she moved away. I had a going away party for her in an A-frame abandoned art studio behind our house. So fun! Sending love, support and comfort to Suzy and Mike.
