For Nancy and your family,
I've known you over 30 years and have only heard warm and wonderful things regarding your mom, Juawana. Nancy, after seeing her photo on this site I realize where you got your beautiful smile. Although I only met Juawana once or twice through the years, your stories really brought her to life. My heartfelt condolences go out to you and Bobby, your daughter Juawana, and the rest of the family as you say farewell for now. Love and hugs to each of you.
