Thank you family for the opportunity of getting to help in Jo's care at Flesher's over the last few years. I loved the conversations that we shared on our shopping trips, medical appts. outings to lunch and especially our trips to Harrah's. She talked about how much that she loved her family and always got so excited when she knew that they were coming to visit with her. She loved each so much and was excited talking about you. I so enjoyed the time I had getting to know her.
