Hurrah for Dorothy's longevity!!!My late husband, Jim Johnson, was the music teacher in Alexandria in the 50's where our oldest daughter Diane was born. Dorothy, Marion, Helen and I all belonged to a Bible study group tigether, and I was invited to many coffees at the Loomer and Montgomery homes. Dorothy knitted a beautiful little sweater for Diane when she was born , and was one of my first callers when I came home from the hospital. She was a beautiful, special lady...good memories of Alexandria. I now reside in Tabor. Jim passed Oct. 13, 2007.
