I may have been the first surgeon to establish a surgical practice in Snellville, but I was a bumbling surgeon when it came to managing an office, what with workers coming and leaving as if there were a revolving door. That's when Jo entered my life. In fact, when we first met, I addressed Jo as Ms. Boatright, something she never let me live down! In my subconscious mind, Jo had come to right the rocking boat and that named seemed apropos!

Withe Jo at the helm, I had not a worry as to how the office ran; it just ran and I had nothing to care about. I could concentrate on what I trained to do. I trusted her with everything and she allowed me to be the surgeon she would rave about. She was indeed my biggest fan and my fledgling practice took off. I did not ever look back. When things were slow, we did crossword together. At other times she corrected my derelict southern grammar and spelling. Jo always won. She helped me become the southerner I wasn't!

Jo was diligent, she was moral. Jo was loving, she was kind. Most importantly, Jo knew that healing needed more than a surgeon and she provided my patients with that extra thought that they cherished.

Jo was a giant part of the surgeon I was. May she be at peace.

My favorite memory is on Sunday morning at Mt. Zion Baptist Church. I could always expect Jo and Bob to walk in all dressed up and her radiant SMILE that filled the entire room. Her kind words growing up. She always have a smile on her beautiful face. Loving her Bob and her children. She loved the Lord and that explained to me her bright existence. Rest In Peace . I know Bob was there to greet you.
