It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Velissa Marion Johnson. On Saturday, February 6, 2016, Velissa disappeared, and was found several hours later in a pond. Born April 11, 2013, she had a beautiful innocent childhood, and only knew goodness, and love. She loved talking to people, playing with her siblings, and pretending to talk on her phone. Her joy, smile, and adorable antics, of a 2 and a half year old, brought smiles to all around her. It was a joy spending, the time we had with her. She will be missed by her eight brothers and sisters (Ellis, Elliot, Landell, Lochlan, Burklan, Shelise, Brylan, and Veleah), and parents, Craig and Sheri. The memorial service is open to the public, and is at the Rose of Sharon Baptist Church (26245 28 Ave, Aldergrove, BC V4W 2W3) at 1:00 pm, on Saturday, February 13. In lieu of flowers, donation can be made for the Langley Memorial Hospital’s maternity ward, and the Advokate Life & Education Services.
