My condolences to the family for your loss of a wonderful, caring mother, grandmother and mother-in-law. I only new her for a short time but every time I met her, she was kind and willing to lend a hand. She would welcome me and my son's with open arms and treated us as family at the ranch. It was always a pleasure to have dinner and a good conversation with her. She will surely be missed and the world will not be the same without her. Rest in Pease Jo Ann and I will light a candle to light your way.
