    Lottie, my grandma, loved Jo like a sister and they had the best times together. From driving all across northeast Kansas to going dumpster diving and going out to eat, they always had fun. Jo was a frequent presence in my life and my sister’s life. I’m so sorry to hear of her passing ❤️ Wishing her family love, peace and comfort ????
