To you Mom,
I will remember you as that beautiful woman with the kind and caring heart, always giving, always working to make us feel comfortable, if by feeding us wonderful things to eat or with your incredible smile and big hugs. I will miss you and will love you always . I am so glad that you can feel completely whole again. That you are in the loving arms of our Father in heaven and that you are surrounded by your family in that beautiful place we call our true home. Thank you for loving me.

Joan is my sister-in-law. During our years of active duty we got to know her family and we visited several times. Jo and Ron were always generous and loving to my family. We decided to move to San Antonio in order to to spend our retirement days near them. Jo and Ron made the best spaghetti I've ever tasted. I know what salvation in Christ is. I know she and Ron are there with God. I miss them both and love them like my own brother and sister. See you guys soon. Save us a seat at the table.

Have so many good memories of Jo because of working together for so many years.She loved to tell the story of how we were in such small office space yet never had a cross word. She was so right. I could not have chosen a better co-worker. We could find humor in nearly everything. She called me "Wezzer" and I called her "Jose", the rest of the office staff called us Laverne and Shirley, We never decided who was who.She was one of my dearest friends and I will truly miss her. But, knowing her faith in Christ, I will see her again one day. My prayers and thoughts are with the Mascilli family. God bless you with comfort.
