    You have my deepest sympathy. It has been many years since we have seen each other. My husband, Larry Higgins and the Johnson brothers were very good friends during their teen years. Larry (now deceased) would want you all to know he valued your friendship. I have thought of you many times. You are in my thoughts and prayers!
