Good day and God's peace be with you.
Words cannot express my deep feeling for Juanita. I know that she is enjoying the presence of God and all the family members who have gone before her to eternal life. Juanita loved life and often laughed heartily when talking about family gatherings and how we were as kids growing up.

To all of Juanita's family, my deepest sympathy. It is a blessing for her to be at eternal rest. She will continue to intercede for us till we meet again in paradise.

Lots f love and prayers for all of you as you mourn her passing.

Your mother was a very lovely lady in so many ways. I remember her kindness to me when I was at your house. I remember her fondly as our Girl Scout leader as well. My condolences to all of you. I know she will be missed by her family.
