    I will always remember “Aunt Jo”. Her cooking, her sense of humor, and her smile. I am glad that George and I had the chance to visit with her during our trips back home. Deep condolences to all of you. Chris Cowpens, SC

  • When we lose our fathers, it’s very sad to lose someone so special but our lives move on. When we lose our mothers, we’ve lost a part of ourselves, but don’t lose courage because time heals. Nothing anyone can say will make your sadness go away but remember you’ll find peace in your memories. My prayers and deepest sympathy are with you.
