Sis. Ree Johnson was a saint of God and a dear and precious soul. During my call to the ministry, I filled in as a supply minister on many occasions at Ozark Primitive Baptist Church, in Ozark, AL. I was a guest in her home many times, but she always made me feel like I was one of her family. Sis. Ree was faithful to God and a pillar of her church. She was an excellent student of the Bible and I enjoyed talking Scriptures with her. I am thankful for the privilege of having known this dear, kind soul. I am confident her faith is now sight.
