I met Johanna walking at Rose Park. The connection was immediate. I looked forward to the walks in hopes that Johanna would be there. She was one of the most interesting ladies I have ever met. She had stories galore and eager to share them. I visited her in her home a couple of times and was so intrigued with her experiences. I will treasure the times I spent with Johanna. You've lost a great lady; but as with me, I'm sure you have memories to last a lifetime. God's blessings to you.
