    Congratulations, Dianne!
    Any information you can give me on your mom and dad?

  2. Dianne Johnson says:

    Oh, Marcia! I just logged on to correct my address and saw this. Yes, Edsel passed away in Dec 2010 after Alzheimer’s. My mom is quite healthy and living in senior apartment in Chisago City. I did hear your mom passed away after having Alzheimer’s. Isn’t that just an awful way to go?! (I guess they all are.) My mom thought so highly of your mom. I loved both your mom and dad! What fun they were!!

    Where are you nowadays?!

      Hi Dianne! Thanks so much for your note! I will have to go visit your mom sometime soon! After 8 years in Jerusalem, we have been living here in Wheaton, IL. However, we are moving back to the Twin Cities – our house has been on the market for several months now. Can’t wait! Two of our three boys are in Minneapolis – one is married with a one-year old boy, and another baby arriving next month! (Our other son is in Ann Arbor, MI, married with a one-year old daughter) Bruce Johnson (Peggy and Eddie’s son) sent me some pictures at the time of mom’s funeral. A couple were of their “old gang” singing carols at one of their Christmas parties. What a fabulous group! We feel the same about your mom and dad. My e-mail is: bussey202@msn.com. Get me yours and I’ll send you some of those pictures!
