Jo was a good friend and wonderful person. I met Jo and Fred in 1966 and we enjoyed many times together raising our families. Her laugh and joy for life was inspiring. Rest in peace and love my dear friend. Till we meet again.
My thoughts and prayers go out to Fred, Doug and family. Fred and I had many a lively discussion on literature. Doug was one of the theater group who I had the pleasure of directing in “Twelfth Night”
Fred, please accept my sincerest sympathy on the death of your wife Jo. Also please extend my condolences to your children. Her absence will be difficult but may you have wonderful memories to keep her alive in your hearts.
Thank you all for your kind thoughts. My mother’s passing has been difficult for all of us. But she truly valued her friends, and she greatly would have appreciated your words. We will always be grateful for the love and the joy she brought to her friends and her family.
Sending deepest sympathy to Fred and family. Jo and Fred were such a comfort to me when my husband passed and I will always treasure their kindness. Jo was one of the sweetest and kindest people I’ve ever met. I know she will be deeply missed. You are all in my prayers.
