To the family of "Dub" Seymore
The BJ Johnson family would like to express our sympathy for your loss. We have many fond memories of our families spending time together. The adults talking around the kitchen table and the kids all playing. We were all friends for our entire lives. Though years went by that we did not stay in touch, the shared memories will be in our hearts forever.
