My very deepest sympathies to Robert and the family for the loss of this amazing woman. She was very courageous and fought so hard against this disease that had taken a hold. She had an incredible will to live and enjoy her wonderful family that she cherished so much. I guess the fight just became too hard at the end. I am so grateful that on March 15th, the family allowed me to say my good byes to my dear friend. I will miss her greatly. XXOO

My sincere condolences to Robert and all of JoJo's family. She is truly an angel in heaven and fought a very long and hard battle. She is now free of pain and I'm sure she is watching over you especially her grandbabies who she adored. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
