Cathy, I am so sorry about the loss of your mother. I never had the pleasure of meeting her, but she sounds like a wonderful person and certainly made the world a better place by giving us you.

I met Mary Jo in 1984. I had just been hired to work at NISD transportation to drive a bus. Mary Jo was the first person to welcome me and help me out with my first route. We then went on to work at Nelly Reddix Center for special needs kids which she had a lot of compassion for. There we worked as co workers for 25 years and shared many experiences . She will be greatly missed
