Jo was my 2nd mom growing up. I think back on ALL the memories with Jo and the family. Her “being called home” saddens me and yet knowing she is now at peace and being settled in within the Mansions in Heaven fills my heart with joy ! Please know that Iam at your side at her memorial celebration. The hurricane has stranded me in so travel is not possible. Lori, Todd, Lisa and Dave you guys will always be my family. Love you and remember, Jo is the Foundation of your family tree. Love you guys, Ray
