Aunt Johnnie Bell was indeed a very beautiful, bright, and kind lady. She made quite a wonderful contribution to our family and to the world throughout her life, and we will truly think of her and miss her. Me and momma send our deepest condolences to her children and their families, and also to all of the other extended family, her friends and community, and her church family, as we know that she was surely loved and will be missed by them as well.
Love,
Carrie
