My Aunt Mrs. Virlean Johnson, was a beautiful lady inside and out. She was the youngest of my mother’s (Lillian) siblings, with 2 handsome son’s and late adoring husband Herman. Of all the things I remember when thinking of her it’s always her beautiful smile that comes to mind, she encompassed a smile that would light up a room as well as a warm heart an welcoming spirit. So giving and sweet always willing to share. I loved her and will miss her always. A tiny little aunt with an enormous heart and engaging smile is how I’ll forever picture her in my thoughts.
