Mary Jo is the mom of my dear friend of many years, Tamzie. I didn't see her a lot in more recent years but when I did, she always had a smile on her face and would always give me a hug and a kiss on the cheek. She was a beautiful lady inside and out who will be terribly missed. I pray that her family and friends will take comfort knowing that she is having a joyful reunion with her Savior and loved ones who went before her.
