We wish to express sincere appreciation to all our relatives, friends and neighbors for their kindness and sympathy shown in the loss of our beloved husband and father, Glenn L. Johnson. In particular do we thank Rev. Graves for his words of consolidation, the pallbearers, all donors the beautiful flowers and cards of sympathy, and the Mayhew Funeral Home for its kind and efficient management of the funeral.
