  2. Mrs. Forterner and Mr. King. I was in the Order of the Eastern Star with Jo, as well as my sister. Jo held an office for me and was such a compassionate person and such a lady,
    We are very saddened to hear of your loss. May God give you the strength to face the difficult days ahead and a peace that only HE can give you.

  3. I am saddened and shocked by Jo’s passing. I knew Jo as my beautician and always appreciated how much care she took in making sure each trim and perm were exact. During our conversations, Jo’s caring heart and kindness always shone bright and beautiful. I feel that Jo took care of others’ needs before she took care of herself. Rest in peace Dear Jo, you made the world a better place in which to live.

  7. I’ve known Jo as my friend and beautician since moving here several years ago. She was a good friend and someone you could share with and enjoy being with. She will be terribly missed!
    I am thankful that our paths crossed and her testimony encouraged mine as we talked about spiritual things.

  8. my dear Jo was a great friend and my beautician for many many years! She had a heart as big as the world and would do for others way before doing for herself. I will miss you terribly and my thoughts and prayers are with her family and closest friends. Love you Jo!!

  9. Please accept my sincere sympathy for the loss of your loved one. May your cherished memories and the warmth of family and friends help ease the pain of your loss. Jehovah God is the source of all comfort (1Cor.1:3,4) and he gives you the comfort and strength you need during your time of grief. The scriptures tell us at John 5:28,29 that soon the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. Reflecting on God’s word the Bible and the resurrection gives us an excellent hope for the future.

  13. Jo was my only beautician for 24 years. She did well with her job. She also had become a good friend. I moved to Fl in 2004 and just moved to Al. I was totally unaware of her passing. About a week ago I had a dream in which Jo had recently passed over. I kept thinking about that dream and I checked on the internet. I wanted to prove to myself that it wasn’t true. Obviously I was quite surprised to find out that it was true. She will live on in the hearts of many people. Thanks a million Jo for always being there for me through a difficult situation. I will see you again!
