Susan & Jeff, My condolences for the loss of your wonderful mother! She and your father were always so kind to my late mother when she was their bookkeeper at Frank Johnson Electric - and to me as well when I'd stop in. Hold tight to your memories ... may they help to bring you to a place of peace.

My sincere sympathy for the family of Martha Grimm. Martha's passing was expected but still is a shock for family members. I got to know Martha from my friendship for her husband and son Jeff. She was a great office manager for their business Frank Johnson Electric. The last memory I remember of Martha was when my wife and I were shopping at Walmarts. The lady ahead of us in line had about 30 or 40 cans of cat food. Without looking I said hello Martha and she turned and greeted my wife and I. Martha always had a love of all animals and took care of them all. I am really sorry about Martha's passing. She will be missed by all.
