Sarah Johnson

November 6, 1935 ~ May 15, 2019 (age 83)


Lord make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am. Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before thee; verily, every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Psalm 39:4-5
