My dear dear friend, Jo. Thank you for "ALL" the wonderful memories we have shared. The cookie bakes, the OC trips, the Lobster House Friday nights, the KFC drive thru and so many more "wonderful and hilarious" moments we have shared, You will be sadly missed and thought of often and always with a smile and laughter. I am sure the heavens are laughing and being delighted in your presence. Until we laugh again my friend, I will miss you and think of you often.
