    My condolences to Barb and the family. Mrs. Johnson was like a second mother during our Junior High years. I always remember her to be a lovely lady. Barb, if you get this I would love to see you after all these years. I live in Noblesville and work at Conner Prairie – so we must be close to each other.
    With heartfelt sympathy,
