My very best friend for 65 years, Jo Hepburn, will always live in my heart and memory. Jo and I married and moved to new homes next door to each other in the Fall of 1951. We were soul mates from the very beginning. As she always said.. "we grew up together". And we did, because we shared our lives completely and laughed so much all the time. We had babies within weeks of each other, combined our leftovers for many meals, played bridge with friends together, shopped, helped each other during times of illness and struggles, prayed together, and so often even finished sentences for each other as we laughed, sometimes to keep from crying. I took her to the hospital when labor began and precious Jonathan was born. We kept in touch in so many ways. This year I couldn't call on her birthday but sent a Thanksgiving card and note, not knowing of her death until yesterday when I read last Friday's Herald obituaries. So, very regrettably I missed her service. That made the memories even more dear. Jo was a beacon of light all her long life. She was such a special, incredibly strong woman. Her gifts to her world are legendary and ongoing. May she finally rest in peace and joy after a life so well lived. I will miss her so much. Lovingly, Liz Isaacs

In loving memory of Jo Hepburn, founder of the Bluegrass Chapter of The Compassionate Friends, 1928-2016.

Jo learned of TCF from the Phil Donohue show and started holding chapter meetings in memory of her son Jonathan who died in 1978. She was a great source of strength and hope to many bereaved parents in the Bluegrass region over the years. Jo shared stories of Jonathan's life and how she kept his memory alive in many ways, from donating equipment at the camp he loved to working in Alaska. Even when she stepped down from chapter leadership, she came to chapter events such as our summer picnic.

She had such an impact on so many lives.

Sweetest,loving lady. She was in my homemakers group and I loved visiting with her. She was a wonderful hostess. She taught me so many things. I have four of her recipes I use often. She gave so much of her time so others lives would be happier. Will miss her.
