My deepest sympathies and condolences to the family.  Dr. and Mrs. Wright helped us tremendously with many of our dogs years ago.  We had worked on their house and game room many times.  I enjoyed seeing his latest editions to the hunting expeditions.

Jo anne and I have been friends for over 35 years.  She bought beautiful clothes from me when I was at a wholesale company in Dallas, Texas.  She and I kept in touch for years and she would always tell me about her love for Raymond her dearest husband and her Two sons.  Over the years we shared our deep faith in God and so many other wonderful
postive things..  She never denied her wonderful faith in God and her beautiful family.  We discussed our health issues and laughed many times over growing older and having to face all these things.  We called each other and kept in touch all these years.  She always encouraged me to go on no matter what.  I knew this week when I tried to call her that something was wrong.  I left a message for her son and he was so gracious to call me back.  Jo anne and I shared a very beautiful friendship based on faith and honesty.  I feel very sad to hear about her passing however she is  in Heaven with the love of her life Raymond.  She was a woman of class and beauty.   I loved her so much and I will miss our conversations yet I know she is with Jesus.  Just know how very much she loved her family.  Love and prayers to all of you.
