Tom and Jewell Johnson are getting along quite well for a couple in their nineties. They have a lot of help from their sons, Lowell and Larry. Lowell stays with them and Larry goes in and out all the time. Shirley faithfully sends food that is already prepared. Tom and Jewell say that they have been blessed with a good family. That family has been blessed with good parents. Gary Emrick was working in their yard this week, running the mower over leaves and breaking them up.
