So sorry to have read this on Facebook. I remember Eddy and Denise from St. Andrew's as my mom Donna was Denise's volleyball coach. But their mom Jo was our TFN Girl's Athletic's bus driver to all of our games. What a lady. She supported our athletic activities at TFN and followed many of us in future sports in college and later on with our lives. She was one of a kind and I am so glad to have known her. May she rest in peace.
