Collen, Kenneth, Besty, and Family,
I was so sadden to here of the passing of Miss Juanita,
she was such a sweet lady and loved seeing her and hearing her stories
of her younger days when I would clean for her, we would talk and laugh a lot.
I have missed seeing her when she moved. She will be surely missed.
warmly,
Mary Lewis

Colleen and family, my thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. I loved my years of singing in the church choir with Juanita at Calvary United Methodist Church. Heaven has a new angel this week, and I thank God that I was able to call Juanita my friend. May God's blessings and His peace be with you.
