My Aunt turned 95 today and she asked me about Ralph Johnson. So I decided to google him and this obit. came up. My Aunt knew him when they were growing up. I lost touch with him after my Mother, Lela Johnson Wilson passed away 2008. Ralph was my mother's cousin and I remember going with her and my Dad to see your parents in Troy and their visits at our house. Also my Mother was the Secretary at Zion Chapel School for many years and I remember him coming by the school. I loved your Dad, he was always so much fun and always so happy to see my Mother and all of us. I am so sorry to hear that he passed away and wish I had known so that I could have attended the funeral. May God give all the family peace and special memories. Love in Christ,
Teresa Wilson Lambert, Pike Road, AL

I met Mr. Ralph when he first started the Pioneer Village. I was the 3rd Vendor out there. He talked me into becoming a Vendor on the weekends, as of that time I worked and lived in Montgomery. I never knew a fight er man than Mr. Talph. I loved him and Mrs. Frankie dearly. He will be greatly missed. Heaven gained a wonderful Angel. Fly High, Mr. Ralph. You're now with his True Love.
