    Peggy, Kathy, and Mary,

    Your Momma, our “Aunt Jo”, was very loved by us all. We have fond memories of family get togethers where she was present, and her cousins all remember the fun times they had growing up! Our hearts and prayers are with you all!

    Peggy, Kathy and Mary,

    Your Mom was one of my favorite people ever in my life. I still remember working at Lake Side Fish Camp with her and Jeffrey, and all I can remember is her laughter!!!
    When Edie called me last night and told me that she had passed, I was sad and happy at the same time. I’m sad because I will miss her, and happy because I know she’s in a place where that laughter of hers will ring forever.
    She was one of my two sweet aunts, and I loved her a lot! We will be thinking about you, and praying for you!
