My message is to Rose's son.....I am so sorry to hear of your beloved mother's passing. She was my friend and classmate from the LHS class of 1954 B. I have been trying to locate her...We had our 60th class re-union this past August and I wanted her to join myself and a few other classmates for the banquet...Starting in July, .I called on the phone and no answer, I sent a note to the address I have for her and Larry and it was returned un-opened.....I did not know who to ask to help me find my friend. I feel terrible and wish I could have visited her at Autmn Aeges.....Edward, know that I loved your mom and will miss her very much....our phone calls always lasted a long while and were very interesting. Been a few years since we have spoken to each other....Last I saw her was at Slovak Club picking up a fish dinner on a Friday. She did not recognize me at first but after a while she sat down with me and chatted......When you and my kids were young we talked more than we have in these last years....I don't think I knew your name was Edward, she used to refer to you as Pumpkin when you were little and then when you grew up it was always MY SON... She was so very proud of you.....I have never met here current hubby......My thoughts and prayers will be with you and all of her loved ones. God Bless....Sue (Urban) Johnson.....
