Please accept our sincere sympathies in the passing of Mary Jo. When we were young, we played together at our grandparents farm (Louis and Bertha Tidwell), and had many good times there. The memories are still there of those good times with Jo, and the rest of our cousins (Hales and Hardys). Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Bill and Joyce Acree
