  1. Dear Danny, Brenda & Family:

    I am very sorry to hear that Doris Jean has passed away. I spent many a night at the Johnson\’s home as Debbie was one of my best friends. Doris and Al were the nicest people and parents. I\’m very thankful that I was able to stop by during my 40th class reunion and reminisce with Doris and Danny about our days growing up. Doris had great sense of humor about it. My heartfelt thoughts are with you at this time. Lynn
