Tom, Terry, TJ and Tyler -
Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time and we wish you peace. Betty left many smiles on our hearts during all of the baseball games and St. Jude events she attended. She was always so proud to be in the crowd watching her grandsons and chatting with all the parents. Betty was kind enough to share all of the little goodies from her cooler she brought with her to the games. She will be fondly remembered by the Johnson Family
