A wonderful grandmother who took us on many adventures as children. Taught us how to crab and make gumbo. She would encourage us to climb trees and make squirrel traps in her backyard. She drove like a nascar driver and didn’t mind letting you know when you were out of line. Welcome home, say hi to the family.

My heart is saddened by Jo’s passing but now she is with her Lord and Savior. I worked with her at the John Gray Institute and she was like a mother to me. She had a big heart. Prayers and blessings to her family.

I am so sorry for the loss of your mom. She was an amazing lady and your lives had to be blessed to be her children. I am saddened we could not be there as I just found out today of her going home to Jesus. Please know your family are in my prayers.
