I am sorry for your loss!
I have known Jo most of my life. I was the neighbor kid knocking on the door to see if the boys could play. And gratefully accepting a homemade popsicle on a hot summer day.
As an adult I was fortunate to get reacquainted with both Jo and Harold.
They were both good down to earth people!
My thoughts and prayers are with you!
Adams Family, I am deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Jo. She was always inviting and a joy to be around. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. ~Chelsea
