I was sorry to hear of Mrs. Johnson's passing. I will pray for the family as you adjust to life on earth without her and prepare to spend eternity with her in the presence of God.

I worked with Ms. Repsie at Shallco. I will never forget her sweet spirit, that loving smile and the twinkle in her eyes. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. I know she will missed. But praise God we know she rests in the arms of Jesus.
