I first met Juanita in June of 1970. I was down visiting Uncle Hank's and she was then engaged to my double cousin, Gene. She was kind to me then, the younger, tag-a-long cousin (I was 13). On one occasion when I was visiting after her marriage (at their home off the freeway) she had just finished a painting on an old piece of wood she had found. "Here, you can have this. Just wait a few days for the paint to dry and you can take it home with you." That painting has adorned my walls wherever I have lived since I was 16. To me, it "pictures" what Juanita was to me: generous, giving, kind, talented, sharing. I have an ache in my heart that she has died. Love and hugs to her family. Remember, I loved her, too.
