  7. Becky, I’ll always remember the vibrant,intelligent Jonnie at BHS and when visiting in your childhood home.

    My sweet mother died Dec. 24, 2008, and I know the bitter-sweet feelings you have now–glad Jonniei is in heaven, yet sad you won’t have her here.

    I have been happy the two Christmas seasons Mother has been gone, knowing she got there for Christmas with Jesus. I hope you and your family will feel that peace each Christmas, knowing Jonnie is whole, free and happy in Heaven.

    Love, Carolyn
