My heart breaks right now. Juanita was a wonderful grandmother to our daughter Autumn Smith. Her and Donald both worshipped the ground that she walked on and was so very proud of the young woman that she has become. I know that Autumn has two very special guardian angels by her side always watching over her. Don you have my sincere condolences. Your mom and I still would talk on the phone after all of these years. She was very special to me and will always hold a special place in my heart.
