    Jo is so fondly remembered for the bright ray of sunshine she brought to the Coast Guard offices everyday. She was a very dedicated public servant. Sending deepest condolences to her family at this sad time. Sincerely, Mary Landry

    I am so sorry for your loss. Your Mom was a wonderful lady. She and I have been friends since meeting at CLNC when we were working for the schools many years ago. I always enjoyed coming down to see her. I will miss her very much.
