  4. We are so very sorry for the loss of my dear ‘sister’ friend. I could always talk to her and feel she understood . She was always such a hospitable, gracious hostess…one of the best cooks ever!! We have so many wonderful memories of spending time with Jo and my brother, Paul. We pray you, her family, receive comfort and peace from our Saviour, knowing she is happy with God.
