Aunt Juanita, I just had to say that I will miss you, now that you are with Brownie, Grandma, Grandpa, Daddy, Mommy, Richard and David in Heaven. I can't imagine the rejoicing that went on when you arrived. I know this is a hard time for Kathy and Bill but I do know that the memories you left behind will last them for the rest of their lives. You were the only real Aunt I had in my life and I will cherish the memories and will always remember the good times we had. R.I.P. now, Aunt Juanita, because you are where you wanted to be. I hope that you will remember always, I love you *Aunt Neet Neet* amd I will miss you always!

May the Lord be with you and your family in your time of sorrow. Juanita and my mom worked together. I remember Juanita and Browny when we used to vacation together at St Pete Beach. They were great folks.
Sincerely,

FROM THE FAMILY
