Well, I don't quite know where to start. Mary Jo and I became friends through the same jobs at our respective IU'S. We traveled to Cleveland and Denver to conferences together and, of course all of the local ones. We were like 2 peas in a pod! I will miss our 2 hour phone calls where we solved the problems of the world. And we never missed a shoe store where ever we went. Bill's and my sympathy to all of you! You have lost a gem, but I know she lives in your hearts!

Paul and Missy,

My parents just told me about your mom's passing and I was so sorry to hear it. I have so many great memories of being at your house with your mom or her being at our house. I vividly remember a makeup tutorial at your house -- it must have been Avon! Your parents were good friends to mine. Your mom will be sorely missed. Thinking of you all.

Paul, Missy and families,
Deepest sympathy on the loss of your mother. What a super lady! Always so happy and positive -- loved her smile.
Of course, we knew her for our entire lives in Conneautville; but I (Linda) worked with Mary Jo for a short time at the IU when she was in HR. She was such a breath of fresh air, so positive and happy. EVERYONE loved your mom. Her smile and energy will always be remembered.
