I am the youngest grandson, Kenny "Baker", as Grandma always called me. I just turned 4, so my Mom is helping me with this. I don't know where she got the "Baker" from, since my middle name is Jack, but I always answered her. Grandma also called me her little boyfriend, and she was my best buddy! Whenever we had spend the nights I would always sleep with Grandma. She said I didn't kick as much as my sister, Charlotte. She always had new play-dough put by because she knew I liked to drive my trucks & tractors in it, & I would sometimes make her play-dough cookies...,which she would pretend to eat. I am to little to understand what happened, but when my Dad held me up to see her for the last time, I said "What a pretty doll!". I will miss her very much. (By the way, Grandma, I found the chocolate Easter bunnies in your drawer & I ate them all in your closet so Mom wouldn't find out!!)

Grandma Johnson was the bestest in the world. She could play a mean game of 10,000. I had only recent begun to play in the rounds, but she was pretty scary to take on, cause she was good. She was a great cook. I was just about the only grandchild who would eat oyster soup with her. I'm glad we had a spend the night with her the week before she went home to Jesus & Grandpa Johnson. I look forward to seeing them someday. Love you forever, Grandma!

My Grandma was the greatest!! Boy,did she know how to cook! I really liked her chocolate pie with whipped cream...yummy! She was always watching out for our best interest, like when she'd make sure we didn't stay too long on the computer or nintendo. She'd always tell us if we looked at it too long that our eyeballs would roll down our cheeks! Sometimes it felt like she was right about that! I really do miss her! Love you, Grandma!

Not too long before my grandma had to leave us, we made cookies together. It was really fun! As we made the cookies, she told me the story about when she made her very first chocolate cake all by herself at the tender age of 5. Her mother only helped when it was time to put the cake in the oven & get it out. Her dad said she done real good, even though chocolate cake wasn't his favorite. I hope I can grow up to be as good a cook as my Grandma. I love my Grandma!!! And I miss her!

Reading all these expressions of love from my family & friends brings tears to my eyes now. They all strongly sum up mom in this one word..LOVE. She really was the very best mom in the world & there is a big empty hole in our lives now,for she was the center of everything "family". She always made sure that everyone else was taken care of, & did her best to see that each of us was feeling happy! On my birthday, a week before she died, she came to our house for chinese food and cake & ice cream, and her & I played several games of 10,000,,which she beat me 3 games in a row & I finally beat her the last game,,she wrote 'Happy Birthday' under the one I won ( hmmm, did she LET me finally win I wonder!), well I found that score sheet & the birthday card she had given me yesterday & in that card she wrote that she was glad I was here so close & that we got to spend so much fun time together,,which we did. If we weren't goofing off around town together, we were visiting & watching FOX news at her house, or we were yacking on the phone. Even now I want to pick up that phone & tell her "hey". I thank our awesome God for His blessing of allowing us so much quality time with each other over the past several months,for His mercy in taking her quickly & for the privilege of being with her at that moment..God is so good! I am also very thankful for my dear sisters & that we are all here close to one another. Thanks to those who send thoughts & prayers our way, may God bless you & yours also.

My Mom was the greatest Mom in all this world! She lived by high standards & values that I am thankful she passed on to me & my family. She & Dad showed by their own example what a real marriage is like, with each spouse giving 100% to the relationship & not trying to keep score of who done what & when. You gave your best at all times just because you love each other. What a wonderful set of parents I had!! I sure miss them! However, I believe the Lord called them (Mom, Dad, & Ward) home for His own purpose, in that they could each help to personalize our future homes in Heaven: Dad, to help build; Ward, to do art work to decorate; & Mom to use her green thumb in the gardens.
I hope I can walk this life in the way that will honor both the LORD & my folks the very most. We walk by faith & not by sight, & know the the LORD's way are higher than ours. I may noy understand the "why's", but I know The "Who" & I trust Him to handle everything and to grant us the grace & strength to carry on like the "warriors for Christ" that we are.
Thank you all for your heart-felt prayers & kind words of support!! We love you,Momma, & look forward to the day of the BIG family reunion!! Praise the LORD!!! And come LORD Jesus!!

We believers are called "Warriors of Christ" and sadly some warriors fall in battle. But I fear not cause Grandma J. did not fall.....she returned home triumphant.
Hello, my name is Keith and I am the oldest son of Sheila Johnson and my late father Kenneth Johnson. The passing of my grandmother broke me for a moment but that moment was quickly followed with the relief that after all these years she is now home with her husband and son and many others. I have been blessed in this life to have shared laughs, cries, games, good times, and interesting conversations with my grandma. Love is the biggest word I can think of when I remember her. That trailer in front of a small creek and next to that yellow tractor (for those that remember it) was home away from home. Holidays and family gatherings were held in her home and it made the cold dark Alaskan winters just radiate with warmth from Grandma's love. To her family wasn't just people you saw or talked too, family to her was life.....and maybe a little bit of Atlanta Braves thrown in too. I know I'll miss her and so will so many others. I greave with a smile, because thats what grandma's want to see on their family's faces. I'll end this with one of my favorite sayings Grandma used to say and I still use to this day.

Keith - "Is today friday?"
Shirley - "All day....even if it rains."

***This is the day that the Lord has made, that the Lord has made.....all day..even if it rains.***

"Granny", or so it is what i called her... was such an amazing person. My family and I have spent so many wonderful and unforgetable memories with her and will be forever held close to my heart. Even though it is hard to know my granny has passed I celebrate her NEW LIFE with the Lord, Grandpa, and my dad...her son! I will never forget "my sleeping pal"(when we lived with her) while we would lay in bed every night talking until we fell asleep. I would then wake up in the morning and always tell her how bad she was snoring, she always had to laugh. My granny will be missed but i only look for the day when we are reunited with all my loved ones and the Lord... and that is what i strieve to see from now until time comes. I love you with all my heart!!

Shirley Johnson is or was my Mother. She was a kind soul and a tender heart. She put others before herself. I often found myself wanting to protect her but other times I found myself the child who wanted to sit on her lap and put my head on her chest just to hear her heartbeat. When I called her she always said "well Hi Baby" When she called me I was "Layney". This occurence happened every morning as it was necessary to get the suduko puzzle done. My heart is heavy from the lose of my Mother. Yet through the grief I realize that God has provided many tender mercies. My sister, Darla, walked away from the accident. Mom never regained consciousness and hopefully felt no pain. My 2 son-in- laws came home from Iraq in one piece on the same day as the accident. I shall continue to praise the Living Lord and thank him for giving me wonderful parents who loved me unconditionally.

Grandma Johnson was a loving great person in all our hearts. She was happy and had a cute smile on her face. She and I would talk on phone and ask about my work and life and that was a big laugh between us she loved it. Many others said she made them fill welcome and witnessd to others about the lord and they were greatfull to haveher to talk too about so many things. My family loved her very much and she took care of us well. She is in a better place with the lord and my dad.One day we will see her soon.Grandma Johnson will be missed and time will come for use to see you again. Love you very much.
