Sally Ann Frederick and Etta’s uncle, Albert George Junkert, June 1969, Corpus Christi, Nueces, Texas.
Brother, Garry “Gigi” Ellis Johnson, Sr. and Etta Louise Johnson Wilson, Aug. 14, 2015, Baytown, Harris, Texas. I went with Garry to see his sister in the nursing home. I never thought that it would be the last time that I would see her alive. Me and Garry wish that you, your mom, and Linda could be here to see us so happy after 52 years apart. We always wanted to be sisters or family. In those days, life was so much easier and not near as evil as it is today. Our neighbors did not have to lock their doors, and we called each other by Aunt, Uncle, or Miss.
God is good. I lost my home and truck to Hurricane Harvey in August 2017, then I lived in a hotel for 3 months. In February 2018, I lost my husband of 12 years. I was depressed and devastated. Garry had been widowed for 4 years. God put Garry back into my life when I really needed him. I prayed, and prayed for God to help me, and I know without a doubt, that He gave me back my first love, whom is now my last love.
I did not pray selfish prayers. I prayed for God’s will whatever it was. I thought that I would just be alone the rest of my life. In fact, I wondered why I was even alive or what my purpose was. Now, I know without a doubt, it was to be there for Garry and him for me. We are not alone. You never outgrow your need for love. We are both 65 now, but we think that we are 12 and 13. Our bodies are getting older, but our spirits are strong.
We miss you terribly but we must go on without you. Rest in peace until we meet again.
Sally Ann Frederick Tudor and Garry Ellis Johnson, Sr, Brownfield, Texas, April 14, 2018. God answered my prayers and brought us back together after 52 years. This is my favorite pic of us. It shows just how happy we are. I have never laughed so hard, after crying so hard for the nightmare year of 2017.
