Monday, June 3, 2019I knew Mrs. Johnson as a teenage boy living in Madison, NJ while I was dating her daughter Pam in high school. I remember her as a very kind, wonderful woman. From time to time the Johnson's would have me over for dinner. As I recall, a standard evening meal was often baked ham, with these small pearl onions. I really disliked onions....and still do... but didn't want to offend Mrs. Johnson, so I would swallow the onions whole via giant glasses of milk. OMG! LOL! I recall one time she gave me an extra large helping of pearl onions, to which it took me 3 large glasses of milk to choke them down! After finishing off the onions I recall Mrs. Johnson looking at me and saying "My Steve....You sure do like milk!" Too funny! RIP Mrs. Johnson. You were a wonderful mother, wife, neighbor and friend, that lived a full life. I have nothing but fond memories....pearl onions included!

Tuesday, January 8, 2019I met Doris through her participation at the LFUMC Liverpool, NY. Doris was a lovely, open person who invited friendships in a loving and generous way. We sat together at many services and enjoyed each other's company at coffee time afterwards. When Doris was no longer able to attend services, I visited her at Greenpoint where she hosted some of us to lunch or we enjoyed a spirited conversation in her apartment. She cared so much for others and always uplifted the down trodden in society. She loved her family deeply and spoke with joy about the events that were going on in their lives. I came to think of Doris as a mother figure in my own life and I was blessed to know her. She was an avid reader and we enjoyed books as a common interest. Souls who lived as well as Doris eternally live on and will remain forever near. With sympathy to the family in your loss. Wanda Baum
