Aunt Jo,
All those evenings that we spent playing Farkle are some of my favorite memories of growing up. Whenever we would play you would always tell stories about our family that I could have listened to all day. I am forever thankful that I was able to have these memories with you and Uncle Bob. Never again will I know such a great Farkle partner.

Love- Jordan

Aunt Jo,
Life with you for my aunt was always an adventure. You made the fifties, and all the years since, fabulous for our little troop of cousins and you were always the biggest kid in the bunch! Your open heart and open door…plus your fabulous cooking…kept our family connected.
Love you always,
Jeannie

So sorry Laurie and family. A journey we all must take at some point. Hoping your sweet memories of time spent with her will lessen your sadness until the rainbow appears again! So glad you could be with her in her final days. Love, Shirley and Ken
