Charlene, Glenda, Ronnie, and Brian,

Please accept our deepest sympathy for the loss of your mother, Juanita. We have so many wonderful memories of time spent together with Juanita and CL. Doug and I spoke last evening and shared some wonderful stories, CL learning to water ski, Juanita's dining room table groaning under an assortment of delicious dishes accompanied by much-shared laughter and stories. And Juanita always taking care that no one needed anything to eat or drink - always the loving welcome at the door.

Juanita now joins CL, my Mom and Dad and others that went before her. Bob said they are all together now sharing stories and keeping an eye on all of us.

Much love to you all, Jan and Bob

Dear Glenda, Brian, Charlene, & Ronnie,
I am so heartbroken for each of you! Words can't describe my feelings for your mom. She was so special in so many ways..... I never stopped, that she wasn't always trying to give me something to eat or to send something home for the boys. Not to mention , she was my security guard for the barn! She always let me know if someone was around the barn that didn't need to be there.... oh my, life will be hard without her. She was the best!
I am so sorry I cannot be there during this hard time for all of you. But be glad she is now with CL. She missed him more than any of us will probably ever know.
I love each of you & will be praying from much comfort in the days ahead. Pennie

Aunt Juanita was always so good to us anytime we went to see her. We will miss her, but we know we will have a great reunion day, in Heaven with her one day, and all the rest that have been joined by her! Please know you all will be in our utmost prayers in the days ahead. Praying that God will comfort you, through family and friends and happy memories. We love you all!
With love and prayer, Allen and Paula Yelton

While words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, we look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the joy of having our heavenly Father return your dear Juanita to you. May you find comfort in knowing that she is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about her and bring her back again. (John 5:28, 29)
