I was crushed to hear about Mary Jo’s passing! I am so sorry, and all my thoughts and prayers are with her family right now. I still very much have the feeling that you all are my neighbors, even though miles and years have separated us. My love to you all!!

Susan and family, I have so many wonderful memories of your mom, from spending the night when we were younger, her taking Mikey to church with her and the yard sale when the gazebo was coming down the street and you thought she bought it from QVC. I still laugh when I think of that day! I feel so blessed to have known such a special lady! Thoughts and prayers are with you all now and always!

Lee, Susan, and Rodney and Family,
We are saddened to learn about the passing of Mary Jo. It just seems like yesterday that we were renting the little house across the street from Lee and Mary Jo. Always a happy smile and kind words to share when your path crossed hers around town. Our sincere condolences during this difficult time. May your memories comfort you in the days ahead. Love, Kevin & Sarah Yeater
