    Reba and Ernie, I haven't seen you since you were very small living in Filer ID. Just wanted to send our sympathy. Betty Jo and I were both Johnsons, went to elementary, jr. high, and high school together--people thought we were sisters or cousins. No relation. My husband, Lewis Olds, was an early boyfriend of Betty's. I used to go home with Betty Jo on the school bus to stay overnight, so knew Fern, Joe, and Gene very well. She in turn would stay overnight with me. We were such great friends until she married Clyde in high school and quit school.
    Please know that we care and hope God is blessing your family.
