Dear Bob & Cheryl and Pepsi's family,
I was very sad to learn of Pepsi's passing from cousin Donald (who attended my mother's visitation the following week). I know the loss and sorrow you are still feeling. Please know Pepsi and Rose were very special friends of my parents (Steve and Joan Johnson) and are remembered fondly by my brother and I as well (especially the most delicious food items that were shared through the years from Rose's kitchen).
Our deepest sympathy to you all...
Lynn (Johnson) Barnes & Stephen Johnson, Jr.
