    Mrs. Johnson was a big influence in keeping me involved in the church. She was my 9th grade Bible class teacher at Trinity Lutheran Church in Cheyenne in 1969. After graduating from confirmation class in 8th grade, her bible class really helped me grow my faith. Because of her example, I went on to teach junior high and high school bible classes at Trinity Lutheran Church in Riverton WY for 40 years. I got a chance to thank her about 20 years ago when I visited Trinity in Cheyenne. Wecome home to heaven. See you there.
