Sorry to hear about the passing of Mrs. Johnson. We have lived across the street from Mr. and Mrs. Johnson since 1977. She was always a sweet lady and smelled so good. RIP and say hi to James for me.

I have known Elly for 45 years since I was just 10 years old. Elly was always a faithful, loving and very kind hearted person and I will miss her very much. I remember as a young teenager when I lived in Killeen driving out to Elly and Harrys home in Copperas Cove every week to cut and take care of there lawn. Elly would always make me stop mowing to come in and cool off and take a break and get a drink and I would play with the dogs as well. She always had a beautiful heart and kind word and she loved to laugh. She was also very caring and supportive of me over the years. Elly as well as her dear husband Harry will always both hold a special place in my heart. They were the BEST. Always remember Elly, its never goodbye, its till we all meet again.
To the Johnson family, please accept my sincerest condolences on your loss and know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
