Condolence From: Jay
Condolence: Sending my condolences to the family. It’s very saddening to learn about Jo Ann’s death. I know she will be dearly missed. Coping with grief is difficult. We always have our God in heaven, Jehovah. He reminds us in this principle at Ecclesiastes 3:1,4: “There is an appointed time for everything... a time to weep and a time to laugh; a time to wail and a time to dance.”​ Being balanced with our time can truly be a good aid for us when grieving.

Condolence From: Barbara Cruit
Condolence: My sincerest condolences to Dr. Smith, Shelley, Lorraine and Jennie. I have been thinking of you, Shelley, in particular. The added blessing of our early friendship was getting to know your wonderful mother.
With cordial affection,
Barbara "Bobbie" Cruit
