Among all of the memories I cherish, I will always remember how much you loved to smile and laugh, Something my mom and I share. You gave me the most amazing mother, aunts and uncles and raised ALL of us to be the best we can be. You managed to keep your cool whenever you babysat my brother and I, chasing us up and down the hill until it was time for sandwiches. I love you with all of my heart! Forever and always, until we meet again.

Juanita was a great woman gifted by God. The stories and the memories shared by your children, husband and sister tell me how extraordinary you were. You will be greatly missed. Your body is at rest but your soul and memorize live forever. Juanita thank you for your amazing loving family because if you didn't have 8 amazing children and pick such an amazing husband I would be alot less loved.
I'm very grateful. Until we meet again I love you very much ♥️
