I worked with JD for many years at the Family Health Center. She brought many smiles to everyone's face everyday. Always dressed to the max with her hair and makeup done. Always applying that lipstick. She was a hoot and was loved by all. She loved her family but her Jonathan was the light of her eye. It has been many years since I have seen or spoken with Johnnie but I have thought of her often. I know her family will miss all those fun times with their Mother and Grandmother. Praying for peace and comfort for them as they move forward without this special lady.

So, sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. She was such a unique person, who brought joy to those who knew her. Memories of the time our Mom’s spent working tirelessly at Burghard always bring a smile to my face.
Many prayers and love always,
