I will never forget Miss Juanita . I visited her in the hospital a few months ago and as we talked, she mention she could sure use a little music in her room.
I pulled out my phone and found a song I had recorded over my karaoke system. She began to listen and closed her eyes. Then she started sing the songs lyrics. She had heard the song many times at home on TV and her radio. When the song ended she looked at me and said that was beautiful and thank you so much for this time together. The name of the song, " I'm Not Givin Up".
It was a great time together as she reflected on her life and gave me encourgement!
Miss Juanita was an awesome lady and will never be forgotten! For the Family I think Miss Juanita would want you and all her friends to hold onto Christ here on earth and join her someday in Heaven!!!

Juanita was a very special person. A joy to spend time with and visit. Many trips to doctors and visits to hospital rooms, she was always up beat. If she had a tear to shred it wasn’t but a moment and then she would remind both of us how fortunate she had been in this life. I know today she is with Jesus. I asked her to save a masion by hers because I wanted to be her neighbor . Love this special lady.
