I knew Jo when I took care of her at the Regency, what a special lady! May she Rest In Peace. My thoughts are with the family.

Carmela would've been happy to know her sister took care of me since she wasn't here for me. I always talked so fondly about my Aunt Jo and Uncle Fred. I was lucky to have both around for so long. I will miss them so much <3 My family is donating Chrysanthemum, Guess How Much I Love You, The Rainbow Fish, and The Girl Who Drank The Moon in her memory.

I can hear Grammy Jo echoing the words my three year old son said to her, as he was leaving her house after a week long visit. " You're gonna miss me!" You're right! We will miss you! Say hello to Grampa Fred from all of us, and give him big hug! With love, Tricia

The moment I met Jo she welcomed me wholeheartedly into her family. She said, " Since you and my daughter are such good friends, you are now part of our family, you're my new daughter. " She not only adopted me, she adopted my children too. Thank you for loving us all! We love you! Tricia
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
