I was not sure where to send a card but wanted the family to know how much I enjoyed getting to know Jo over the last year. She was an amazing lady with so much personality! I always enjoyed my time with her and never came away from our meetings without a smile on my face. I will miss her tremendously!

I am so blessed to have been apart of her care. I will miss sneaking in her room for hugs and root beer candies on busy days and coming in on my days off for long talks about life. Charlotte was so much more than just a resident to me, there will always been a special place in my heart for my Jo Mama. I'm so sorry for your loss, she is so missed.

I'm still missing you like crazy Mom. Tomorrow would have been your birthday. You could have gotten yourself a strawberry sundae and a granny lemon cake that you liked so much.

I love and miss you,until we meet again.

Your son Jeremy.
