You don't know me and I really didn't know Johnnie that well either but she made an impression on me.
Several years ago we both did water aerobics at the gym together. She was always the cheerleader and so outgoing with that wonderful smile of hers.
I was impressed with her vitality then.
I hadn't gone for years now but started back again about a month ago.
I saw Johnnie there -I was amazed to see her- we talked for awhile - she told me how old she was and that she had to keep up her walking in the pool. I was very impressed and so encouraged by her, I just had to write you.

I'm sorry she's gone from this earth for you, but she has a home in heaven now.
I viewed the video ,enjoyed it , you have wonderful memories of her and I'm sure she touched many lives that you know nothing about just as she did mine.
Sincerely,
Sue Burk
