  • Jorena played many roles in my life. my step-mom, my big sister, my mentor, my confidant, my prayer partner, my friend. We cried together, laughed together, acted silly together, we prayed and praised together. I have so many memories. She planted seeds of wisdom in my life that I will never forget. I will always and forever carry her in my heart. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. Be comforted in knowing that we haven’t lost her because we know exactly where she is, with our Lord and Savior.

  • Oh My God JoJo, I’m so at a loss. My God, My God, My God.

    You were such a sweetheart. For the light you brought to my life I praise God for. You were my sister and no matter how hard headed I was and Cosey slow down you work to much and man when you caught up with me you let me have it. Lol. I feel bad because I been calling and calling and calling you and no answer. You have stayed on my mind so much. I remember praying with you when the first time we met and I was going thru medical issues, ( Don’t you believe in God). I thank God for you Sis, and I love you so so much, my Lord this is hard. I’m always late as you know but we had just spoke and I’m thinking ok JoJo done had enough chewing me out, so she good for a minute so I’ll call here in a couple days and smooth this out. Lol.

    LISTEN TO ALL OF US WITH THE EXCUSE THAT WE HAVE SO MUCH TO DO JUST STOP AND THINK THAT THE NEXT SECOND IS NOT PROMISED. Love and embrase each other while we here and let’s stop playing catch up. We really have no time to catch up. God has given us this time to love one another, and be together. I use this so often ( I have to pay this, I have to buy that), and we get all caught up in fashion, fads, and wanting the best to where we forget to look around and hug and love each other. God has given us so many chances to get this right, and we fail constantly. I was angry at God a few years back when he took my mama away, so I embraced work as a outlet. JoJo said Cosey yo big head butt knows better because what did yo mama say!! Crazy how she would use that over me. Don’t know if any one can see this or not but if you are believe me I loved this lady. I won’t ever be the same because I knew her, and I know Jesus.

    Please family if you would like to ever talk to me please reach out. My number: 1-269-944-6078! Thank you and God Bless you all.
