  1. My beloved Grandma Jo, you inspired me for my entire 54 years that I was blessed to have you. I always knew I was loved unconditionally, because I had you.
    You passed on a great love of art to me, with which I will honor your memory with.
    Grief is a strange thing. I’m caught between sadness in our loss of you, and overwhelming joy for you, as I know you are with Jesus, and all our family in heaven.
    Until I see you again, Grandma Jo. I love you forever.
    Your granddaughter, Christy
