I offer my deepest condolence, to Anna's family.

It was my honor to serve sweet Anna when in the Macy Shoe Department. You must know, I loved her and I will miss her terribly. She was so funny, and when I think of her that is how I will remember her.as you know "laughter is a good medicine." She brightened, my day.
Anna honestly, had a sweet spirit and I looked forward to seeing her, whether she left with a pair of shoes, stopped by the department, to look, or as she passed by the shoe department to say, hello.

I thought you should know I am glad to have known Anna, she made a difference in my life!

Ms. Johnson had a genuine way of making the friends of her children feel as if they were one of her children, also. During visits to Dallas, years ago, my son and I were benefactors of her kindness, generosity, and genuine care for others. I thank God that her legacy lives on thru you - my friends: Velita, Judy, and Cynthia. I pray that God strengthens and comforts each of you and your children. ~Prayerfully, Pat and Christian Duffie
