    Jaunita was always special to my mother, Dot Williford Thompson. They were cousins who grew up together and then grew apart. I remember going to a christening for the twins. I always thought she was so pretty and sweet. God bless you. I am so sorry for your loss.

    We saw first hand that Juanita was such a wonderful mother and grandmother by our being neighbors of Rick and Sheryl for many years. She was always sweet and smiling. Our prayers are with Ray,
    Rick and Cheryl and her entire family.

    Juanita's smile says it all. She was a wonderful mother and grandmother and friend to so many. The beauty in her looks could not compare to the beauty in her heart. She was always smiling and sharing with friends and family. I will miss her greatly but am glad she is no longer suffering. May her family be at peace and know she is in the arms of our Loving Father.
