    Georgia, Shirl and Chuck
    My heart was sadden to hear of the the passing of Miss Jo Reva. Growing up on Paradise Street was extra special because of your mom. She never seemed to be bothered by children around her. She promoted our little singing group “The Children of Israel” Shirl, Sybrenia and Sheila.

    She was a very supportive lady and an awesome woman of promise. She loved the LORD and the LORD’s people. Miss Jo Reva was GOD’s woman.

    Your Mother was filled with laughter. And she shared that ministry with everyone who would receive it.
    Job 8:21 says He shall fill your mouth with laughter… She made people smile.

    I will truly miss her

    Love and prayers

He is the great dryer of tears and the mender of broken hearts and I know he is watching over you.
