So saddened to learn of Mrs. Littlejohn's passing. I own a house next door to her on Stevens Street. She always kept a watchful eye on my tenants and my property. Many times my tenants would tell me how Mrs. Littlejohn would sit outside with them and study the Bible. She was such a Godly woman! I would always visit with her when she was sitting on her porch. While she is gone from our sight, she is not gone from our hearts. I know she is Living in Glory in Heaven.
