I’m a caretaker at Beehive Homes and was honored to have gotten to know this sweet woman and take care of her. Her smile or laugh brightened my day. She was such a wonderful woman.
Rest easy Ms.Jo.

Amy and sons, I still remember in 2005 when Mom(Mary Masters) and I had moved into south Highland Village. Jo came calling bringing us a welcome to the neighborhood baked good. Such a sweet lady.
