My family knew Lynda Jo for many years. She was always sweet and thoughtful. Especially to my mother, Ruby Jones, when she was her home health nurse. Very patient person. A very special place in my heart for her. Everyone has been blessed to know her. Peace be with the family.

I had the privilege to work with Ms. Davis at the Port Lavaca nursing and rehab center. She was the sweetest person with so much patience. May she rest in peace.
