To my cousins, Aunt Jo will be greatly missed. My prayers are with each one of you. She was such a great lady. I know that this is a part of life but it sucks. As I get older, I realize that you have to cherish each moment with the ones that you love. So to you Aunt Jo, fly high with the angels and sing beautiful songs in heaven. Love to you all. Robin and Rick
