So sorry for your loss. She was a dear, kind lady. She endured great pain and yet was a tower of dignity and grace. My deepest sympathy to you all.

Ms. Jones will always be remembered by me! I loved her spirit and humor. I will forever be grateful for my job and the privilege to have been able to know Ms. Jones! My heart goes out to JoAnn in the loss of her mother, but I know without a doubt she is in Heaven rejoicing! You will be missed!
