Dear Family:
My sympathies with love to all of you including your
Aunt Carolyn. Your Mother spoke so highly of her!
I spent some 40 years enjoying Jo's cooking and laughs in Gourmet Club. Too many of those best friends are now conversing in heaven. I so enjoyed
talking on the phone with Jo. Hopefully, you have found the Gourmet photo album I put together. They were fun days! Great memoirs for you to enjoy! May peace and comfort support the day's ahead. Jo will be missed!

I regret that I'm unable to attend the service of remembrance for Jo due to an out-of-town commitment. She and I taught Sunday School together at Faith UM Church, she was in my P.E.O. chapter, and she was great fun to be around. She told entertaining stories often about silly things she did. I wish the family comfort and peace.

The Moock Family,

I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your mother, mother-in-law, and grandma. She was one terrific lady. I was her aide until she retired and I consider her one of my mentors. I still use some of her sayings to this day "Think" and "Take care of yourself"
Education needs more Mrs. Moocks.
She was strong, compassionate and the best storyteller ever. She was passionate about her students' success in and out of the classroom. She gave me great advice about anything I asked her. I will truly miss her but never forget her kindness to me and my family.
May all of your memories of your mom (putting her school picture in your stockings money envelope) bring you peace, comfort, and laughter in the days ahead.
