To Wayne and Family,
We were saddened to hear about Jo. We've always enjoyed seeing and being with you two when we had the opportunity, especially when you hosted Haney/Jackson family reunions in the past. Our deepest Condolences to you and may God bless and be with you at this sad time. Charles & Carolyn Jackson, Clovis, CA.

Jo was my classmate and friend, she was such a nice person as were all the Berkemeyer sisters.

Jo was a sweetie. She always wanted to sing you a song and she did have a beautiful voice. Sending our love and prayers to Wayne; whom she had loved forever; and Kat, Pat and Suzy. She is at rest now. Our love. BC&G.
