Johnson Family wrote at 2012-01-18 07:31:47 To the family of Ms. Greenleaf, please accept our deepest sympathy. Words cannot take away the pain you feel but knowing that others are thinking of you can be a source of strength. May the God of all comfort continue to wipe the tears from your eyes as we await a time of no more death, sickness, or pain. (Revelation 21:3, 4)
