November 22, 2019

I was honored to be Jo Ann’s son-in-law over the past several years (even if “officially” for less than a year). I will always remember the countless laughs we shared, her trips to Dallas every summer, the chats we had over coffee, and her friendship. Above all, I will appreciate her accepting me into her family. I will miss her.
