Her absence will create a gap for her greatest joys, her grandchildren; Rachel Cash, Leah Cash, David Johnson III and Jacob.  Her grandson, John Evan (deceased) held a special place in her heart as did she in his.   She’ll be sorely missed by her treasured sister (Hattie (Alfounsia) Hill), her many cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.
