Dear Ronnie and family, my heart goes out to you for your loss. I am so glad to have been a part of Aunt Johnnie's life. As I celebrate her life I am thinking fondly of many childhood memories at her house. She always had a crowd at her house having a good time. I enjoyed looking at the photos and seeing all of those that loved her and and that she loved dearly. With my sincerest thoughts and love, Renee Lancaster Martin and family
