I have shared many jokes with Johnsie over the years and she really got a kick out of them. I am running out of Hamlet friends and relatives way too fast. I know where she is and will miss her.

My heart is so heavy as I read this write up. I do know that Johnsie gained her Heavenly Wings and Jesus and Jep were at the Pearly Gates waiting for her to enter. This brings peace to my heart.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you . She was so loved by all of you. I can just imagine how happy she is taking all the beautiful sights of Heaven in. Love to all. Aunt Frances

Johnsie was a wonderful aunt and a fantastic friend!  She always had so great advice for everyone.  There was a time, and we laughed about it often, that I was not sure what a "flyswatter" was used for except popping us (me) on the behind.  I will miss her love for everything!!  She was the best!!!  Fly high, dear Johnsie, fly high.  Enjoy being with Jep and the rest of the family.  Thanks for being another angel to watch over me (you know I need it).  I love you!!!

Greatest aunt you would ever want to have. One of the most selfless people I have ever known. She will be missed by all.
