Memories Timeline


  1. Sonja and Lacie, sorry to hear of Miss JoAnns passing. My condolences and prayers for the family and friends. I was friends with Allen and Lanise many years ago.

  2. My sweetest Angel. Ill never let the love we shared fin the 48 years we spent together. My aunt, my life saver, my precious Friend and biggest supporter. My heart is not broken, its shattered. You can never, EVER be replaced. My 1 and only Aunt JoAnn. Ill never let you go. Ill never have someone like you in my life ever again. Who will I confide in? Wholl be my sounding board? My life will be forever incomplete without you..As we spoke about our lives in these last few months are now treasures. The thought of going on without you there is still unimaginable. I love you to the end of the world, there was never a bad time in our life together. Ill miss you forever and theres nothing anyone can do to take my loving memories of you saving me so many times. I will continue to move forward and Ill own my shattered heart until this life altering loss is but a glorious memory. I love you so much, MY Aunt JoAnn. I miss you so much already that my whole body hurts. I never thought youd go but Im grateful to God for taking all the pain. Being Blessed by you in my life is something Ill never let go of. I know that youre in heaven. Theres no doubts about that. But, as I told you last week, Im a selfish bastard and I want you here but also I wanted all the struggles to stop. You suffered, you died and now youre in the arms of God. Exactly where you said youd be. Your little red headed Shelber- Shelby Paul

  3. Sonja, May the Lord comfort you in this difficult time. Your Mom was a wonderful lady that Ralph and I adored. I am so sorry for your broken heart. Sending you love and hugs. Love, Pam

  4. Prayers for you all with the loss of such a beautiful lady. I know there was a crowd of loved ones just waiting to see her. May the good memories last forever in your hearts and minds. We love you all.

  5. To the Family, so sorry for your loss. Hope you will be comforted in knowing that JoAnn has the prospect of being resurrected, healthy (in the flesh), to Paradise Earth just as Jehovah God has promised. In fact , the vast majority will enjoy everlasting life right here on earth as God had intended from the beginning. God’s Kingdom will do this under the rule of Jesus Christ.
