I have so many memories, where shall I begin. My Aunt JoJo has been my favorite Aunt since I can remember. I will cherish all the times we spent together She use to pick me up and we would hang out for the day. We would either go to burger chef or to bowling alley or just chill at home with our hostess snacks and Dr. Pepper. It’s going to be hard not having her at birthday parties or holiday get togethers. She would always get my husband started singing and dancing to something. We will keep her in our heart and minds forever. I love you Aunt Jo -love your “Lucy & Ricky”
