Dear Vickie:

I am so sorry to hear about Aunt Juanita. I did not find out until Saturday. I do not get the scout any more. I will truly miss her. She and JB were two of the sweetest people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Please let me know if there is anything I can do. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Juanita was a beautiful lady and her presence will be felt across the miles...I live not to far from where Juanita grew up on Moccasin Creek Road.. She came to my house many years ago and sold us some burial insurance.. We sat and talked for such a long time about how she grew up and the fond memories she had of the area.. My dad and mom thought the world of her and spoke of her often.. Heaven gained a beautiful heart with a golden crown..Many thoughts and prayers for all of you.

We loved Juanita so! She & my mother (Ruth English)were best friends for all my Mother's life, even before I was born. Juanita was a very important part of our lives and will be missed terribly!

Much love to you, Vicki! We sure loved her!

Our Family was privileged to meet Juanita for the last year of her life through my Daughter, Carly, who formed a strong friendship with her at MMC. They shared a strong bond of love and laughter, and Carly's visits often became a highlight in their day. We're grateful for the wonderful friend Carly gained through their special relationship. Our condolences and prayers go out to all her family as they grieve her passing. Although we will experience her loss here on earth, all who know her know that it is Heaven's gain. Rest in Peace Dear Juanita, we love you. Steve, Iris & Carly
