Joe Wilson,
Thinking of you on your loss.
I remember your dad.
He was alway so pleasant and good to work for.
I'm sure your mom like mine was one of a kind .

Joe and family, my deepest sympathy goes out to you in this time of sorrow. Juanita was just like another mother to me and she will always be in my heart. She was such a loving person and her smile could always make my day with a big hug when I would stop by to see her. She has always been a part of my life for the past 25 years and she will never be forgotten. My heart is sad but I know that God will take care of her and also give you and the rest of the family peace in this time.
