Mom....we never had much growing up....but we always had each other. You always made sure we had a roof over our heads, and food on our table. I remember on Easter mornings..you made home made hot cross buns and cocoa:)) I remember and smile....because we were family. As we got older...my sisters became farther apart....and I never understood why material things were so important to them. Yet I still love them all...after all...they are my family. Remember to cross that rainbow bridge and pick up Stanley....poor dog has been waiting for one of us almost 40 years!! But you will remember him...because in heaven....you are young forever! I hope my sisters will see the err of their ways! I love you MOM!! Your son...Kenneth Wayne Johnson
