Dear children and grandchildren of Emery Johnson:

Although I never had the privilege of meeting Emery personally, I admired him by observing the love for the Lord exhibited by his children and grandchildren.

May you all be comforted and not grieve as those who have no hope.

God's blessings,
Alan Yeater

To The Family,  So sorry to hear about your loss, you probably never heard of us but if I am not mistaken your Grandpa John Tarr was a first cousin of my mother, Grace (Tarr) Jones of Leipsic.  I have two brothers, Elvin and John Doyle Jones.  I am sure Barbara and John can explain who we are.  We will continue to keep you all in our thoughts and prayers.  Blessings, Iona and Bob

I remember when my sister Betty married Emery, I was only 8 years old and we come home after the wedding I thought Betty would be back home before her curfew but I waited and she never come back.  I had a big adjustment to Betty being gone.  Emery was well versed in the Bible and please read Romans 8:38-39 when you remember him.  Love to all the family!
