Planted in the area of greatest need


Condolence to the Johnson Family. Miss De De was a beautiful person in and out. I always enjoyed coming to her home to spend some time with Butch, Cornel, and Soundra in my younger times. Miss DeDe could cook so well. She was my Moms best friend. You did not want to mess with Miss DeDe. She would always greet me with that beautiful smile and Hey Mike. You never forget good people and she was one of those great people. She will be missed. She was my second Mom.
