Keith, you probably don't know my name but I live in Totopotomoy and waved all the time when you drove by. I went to Patrick Henry HS. I believe Juanita was a year ahead of me. I was so shocked and surprised to hear of her death. She was so sweet and friendly. My husband told me about it because her mother and sister take their cars to his shop in Henrico, Greendale Auto Ser. Ms Payne came their few days ago and told him. Take Care and God Bless!
