Miss O, as we liked to call her was my Mother Gwen’s roommate at the nursing home for over 2 years until my Mother’s passing . And she was such a blessing to my Mother and our family. My Mother had Alzheimers and we were worried she would not be able to communicate. That never stopped Miss O. She talked to my Mother every day. If Miss O was going to activities and they were making something she always made an extra gift for my Mother. On Halloween she was making sure my Mother had her costume hats to wear while they gave out candy to the kids. She would make sure my Mother’s blinds were open so she could sit by the window to watch the birds liked she loved to do. Many times before Miss O was being taken to something she’d say, wait, check on Gwen. And she would always say I love you Gwen, until she could get a smile out of her! Miss O’s kindness, generosity, and love was never spared on my Mother. It was overflowing. I will always be eternally grateful for that. We love you Miss O, and Thank You!!!

Much love,

Kathleen

Jaunita was a very beautiful person and had a heart of gold. She played a very big part I’m mine and my girls life (Lindsey,Payton madison) when they were younger. Jaunita was like a second mother to me she never held anything back . If I was messing up believe me she let me know lol. I guess you could say she keep me in line when I started to fall off. I am a very thankful for all the times she was their for me and my kids when I needed her the most . In my young and wild days I had got in some trouble and had to go away and take care of it , Jaunita was their for me with open arms to take in my girl for a while like they were her own grand kids . I knew I didn’t have anything to worry about knowing my kids were in good hands and with someone that loved them like her own. I love you Jaunita and thank you for everything you have ever done for me and my girl s
