Johnna introduced herself to me when we were in the fourth grade and asked me to be her friend. What an invitation that turned out to be! Our families became fast friends, too. We (Johnna, Melanie & I) wove in and out of each other's lives through the years but managed to celebrate landmark times together. (Weddings & birthdays--ours, babies---theirs) She came back into my life during her last year here and we spent some sweet time together. I just didn't know it would be that short. I sure miss her.

I met Johnna in Elem. as well as Stephanie and we hung out some. She was the biggest Donny Osmond fan ever, she knew things that only a true fan could know, like the fact that his favorite color was lavender and that he had a lavender pair of socks for everyday. We ran into each other from time to time as we got older but were never real close, but the last time I saw Johnna was at church at Emmanual Baptist and we caught up on things that we had missed out on and then as we got ready to go she said I love you and I said I love you too. And with that turned and left, little did I know the next time I would hear of her would be her passing, God is so gracious for those moments we sometimes take for granted. I was so honored to know her and be her friend Kristy Kimberlin Paramore

Johnna will be very much missed in this world. Even though, I've been closer friends with her younger sister Stephanie, I knew her to be always sweet and a true Christian in all senses of the Word. A blessed family they are and will always will be. It's nice to know that Stephanie has Johnna and her mom as Angels looking out for her.
