I want to send my condolences to all of you. I am so sorry for your loss. Juanita was a great person and I am sad about her passing. I knew her here in Bellville and helped her a few times at her shop. I enjoyed talking with her and she loved talking about her family, she loved you all. I will miss her and her stories. You are in my prayers. Robyn Lowe
