Jo meant so much to so many people. She loved nature and spending quality time together with her family. During Christmas holidays we baked Italian fig cookies together. She was so concerned about having enough to share with everyone that she would count them. I spent many childhood summers at her house. She had a pet name for every hummingbird, cardinal or squirrel that visited her backyard. At night she would make up bed time stories for me and my sister Danielle about the animals we saw that day. She had a kind heart and loved to laugh. She was such a devout Catholic. It brings me peace knowing she is in the heavenly garden with our Lord, interceding on our behalf and reminding Him of why we deserve to be in His favor. She is at peace now with all of those who have passed on before her. I love you Gram.
