    I’ve known Mary Jo most of my adult life. She is like a second mom to me. Meeting at CCM, then having her live in the apartment above me. Many haircuts/perms she gave us in the 90’s. Many dinners and lots of laughs. I will miss her Smile, laugh and hugs. If you were having a low
    Moment MJ came in and gave you a hug it was like a weight lifted. We all need to be more like MJ!! It’s comforting to know we’ll see her in the future.

    You are the best momma a son could ever ask for. God blessed me when He gave me you. You always did your best for us all. I am sure I will miss calling to say hello my momma. But you are now with your Jesus, I would never want to take that away.

    Love you all so dearly. And I am so happy to see the homeless will continue to be supported by one wonderful lady - that ministry was her heartbeat next to her family.
    I will not be in town when the memorial service will be held, I will be in Michigan, but I will be with you in spirit and be worshiping our King right along with you during this time. I look forward to meeting her again to spend an eternity with not more pain, sorrow, or tears.
    My heart,

    I am very sorry for your family’s loss. Isaiah 41:10 highlights God’s promise to support you during this difficult time and He will strengthen you as you draw closer to him in prayer. May the memories you shared with Mary bring you comfort, along with God’s promise to see our loved ones again. Acts 24:15.
