    I am a coworker of Pat Johnson and have heard many stories of Elma and thought that Elma was an adorable person and that her wit could not be matched! I know Pat adored her mother very much because she always spoke of her with love. I would always tell Pat after she was done with a story that “she is so cute”. I know that God will keep the family in his thoughts while welcoming Elma to him. May God bless all! Love you Pat!

    Pat is like a sister to me. I hope & pray the family is at peace to know she is with her husband & my dad & brothers & all that have past before her , and that we will see her again in Heaven.
    I believe she was an angel.

    Pat and all, I was sorry to hear of your loss of Elms. She was so cute! I took care of her several years back and she was very funny and sweet. I just loved her. Be comforted in knowing she is with her Father in heaven and all of those she loved who went before her. She will be missed.
