Aunt Jo was called Home to be with God today. She was in a lot of pain and now
suffers no more. I loved being with my Aunt Jo, I was probably closer to her
than most people are with their Aunts, we used to meet at Central Market and
have lunch, we'd talk for hours and before we knew it 4 hours had past, she
always had pearls of wisdom for me when I was at a crossroad in life. She was
most and also brilliant. While in Dallas last week, I spent several hours with
my Aunt Jo, she told me that she was in pain and my heart broke. What gives me
comfort now is knowing that her knees are as good as new and she no longer has
to walk with a cane, her back is healthy and now adorns a pair of beautiful
Angel wings. She is where she looked forward to going for years, she is with
God and rejoicing in Him for eternity. God bless you all who prayed for her a
month ago, without your prayers I may not have had the opportunity to see her
one last time last week. It saddened her when I cried, she would always say,
"oh baby, don't cry, you're going to make me cry." I'm sorry Aunt
Jo, I know my tears are selfish but I am comforted knowing that you are with
our God, renewed, happy and healthy once again.

IT'S BEEN ALMOST A YEAR JOLAYNE AND I STILL MISS YOU SO MUCH. I MISS YOUR LAUGH AND THE WISDOM YOU ALWAYS SHARED WITH ME. I AM NOW CURRENTLY WORKING TO FOLLOW IN YOUR FOOTSTEPS AND HOPE TO MAKE YOU PROUD MYRA
Aunt Jo, Today would have been your 73rd birthday and I've thought about you all day. I started my day with watching the sunrise on the boardwalk, it's low tide right now so the waves were just gently rolling up onto the sand. I miss you more than I ever thought possible, there have been so many times in the past year that I started to pick up the phone with a quandary only to realize I'd have to figure it out on my own. You taught me so much about life, people, and God. I always ask myself "how would Aunt Jo have handled this?" I hope I'm making you proud. I love you, Tina
