So sorry for your loss. Jo was a childhood friend of mine and I shared many, many happy times with her and her sisters, Lynda, and Nina.( and her entire family ) I loved her grandparents and mother too. So many wonderful memories. Then later we would visit and share memories ( and make more ) memories at The Fried Pie. She got her love of baking from her Grandmother Lawrence and I remember eating many good meals cooked . by her too.
May God bless and be close to each of you during these difficult time.
My love and prayers, Phyllis
