    Since early childhood, the selfless love and kindness Aunt Mary Jo showed me on each visit to her home, has been a source of many happy memories. Her quick wit and keen sense of humor made her a joy to be around. Even as her health declined in recent years, I don’t ever remember seeing her when she didn’t share a smile, crack a joke and make a positive comment. While I am deeply saddened that there will be no more opportunities to make new memories with her here on earth, I thank God for the blessed hope we have of seeing her again at Christ’s Second Coming. Until then, cherished memories of her will cheer me when I’m sad, warm my spirit when the world turns cold, and inspire me to always give the world a smile, even when it seems there is nothing to smile about. I have been blessed and honored to be a part of her extended family.
