  1. I love and miss my Aunt Jo! She was such a great person, she affected my life in a very positive way.

  2. I miss Aunt Jo so much! I have shed so many tears in the last few days and week. She was not an Aunt. She was more like a Mother! I know I am not the only one that feels this way. I could not wait to visit her during the holidays and summers growing up. Always, always, always positive about everything. She was a true role model for a young woman to look up to and want to be like. She was nice to everybody. She would do anything and everything she could for you. She always made every one of us feel special. I was fortunate to be able to talk to her often in recent years and was able to tell her how much she meant to me now and when I was growing up. She always asked about everybody. We would talk for hours and hours. I’m going to miss our talks Aunt Jo, but I know you are not hurting anymore; and you have a lot of people to see in Heaven. Remember, we are not promised tomorrow and we need to always tell people how much we love and appreciate them. I’m glad I was able to tell her. I am so sorry for her family though, Eva, Steve, Donna, Donnie, Daniel. I will pray for you daily and hope at some point later in life you can find comfort in knowing we will all see her again. I mourn with you. I love all of you dearly.
