It saddens my heart to hear of Jo,s passing.

I am proud to say she was a dear friend. Such a sweet soul. We hung out when we were attending Midvale Jr and were debate partners in high school. We didn't do much debating, but we sure had a grand time chatting.

She will be missed. I'm sorry we weren't able to chat one last time.

Tim, I have just learned of Jo's passing, and I am shocked and saddened. I am happy I had made contact with her a couple of years ago.I know things weren't easy for her the past years dealing with M.S. You were very kind to her and you did the best you could for her.
I pray Jo is at peace and reunited with her father and her sister. I am very sad knowing I won't see her again in this life.
Tim, I have good memories of you and Jo when we lived in Salt Lake. I remember when I visited you in Vegas, and we saw a play Caitlin was in at school and then had dinner at your house. I still have the program from the play!! I have always considered you dear friends. Jo was a very sweet, very pretty lady. I will always remember her.
With my deepest condolences,

Dear Aunt Joan, and Uncle Fred~
So sorry to hear of Jolene's passing. Though I never met her, I know that you loved her a great deal. May the memories you have help through the grief, and knowing she is well and whole, with her sister and her father, bring you comfort and peace. Love you both, very much.
