Gail, Bob, Joan, Teddy and all of Juanita's beautiful family, I am so sorry for your loss and pray that you find peace and comfort knowing that your Mother and Babaw is with the Lord. Heaven received a remarkable angel yesterday. She will be truly missed by everyone who knew her on this earth. It has been a privilege to have known the great lady that I called "Neat" which is something I picked up from your Dad and Grandpa "Peanut", over 40 years ago and that nickname truly described Juanita in one word for me. She worked for and loved her family and extended family of friends and most everyone I ever knew that had the opportunity to know her as hard as she could her entire life. Whether it was cooking a meal for you or making a quilt for your child she always made a lasting and loving memory. Cherish your memories and Neat Gartin, you are loved to heaven and back and until we meet again, we love you and we thank you for all that you did for us. Bye for now.
