    Jo, I am so sorry babes, you are the bravest and kindest woman I have ever known. you gave me so much love and happiness, I am sorry you were taken so young, it’s so cruel and not fair.
    I can’t wait to hold you in my arms again, but for now, sleep tight my love, you will always be in my heart, now go and fly with the angels and dance with the stars, and there you will remain, till I am, where you are.
    Jo, I will never forget you, I love you so much babes XXXXXXXXXXXX :tealights:

    Jo you were such a kind, caring and fun person, and I use to love rowing with you! We had so many laughs on and off the water!
    You were always so full of energy and your laugh was contagious! Use to love bumping into you and Glenn & catching up. Also use to love seeing your posts on Facebook, as you and Glenn always looked to happy together and you use to make me and Sarah laugh…especially the video of you in the trolley with Glenn laughing! 😄
    So glad I got to meet you…lovely memories.
    Rest in peace JoJo. Xxxx :tealights:

    A rose once grew where all could see
    Sheltered beside a garden wall And, as the days passed swiftly by
    It spread its branches straight and tall
    One day a beam of light shone through
    A crevice that had opened wide The rose bent gently toward its warmth
    Then passed beyond to the other side
    Now you who deeply feel its loss
    Be comforted – the rose blooms there
    Its beauty even greater now
    Nurtured by God’s own loving care :candle:

    My Dearest Daughter Joanne Louise – As the tears well up in my eyes I cannot believe you have gone. I know from our weekly skype chats that you were beginning to get weary. You struggled for so long. You will always be in my heart until we meet again on the other side. You will become a beautiful angel. The last years that you were blessed to be with Glenn were the happiest that I have ever seen you. Thank you Glenn. All my love your Mummy. :tealights:
