We are so very sad to hear of Mary Jo's passing. She was so good to me, my Fiance Michael, my boys Hunter (Jessie) & Kylar, and especially my Mother Betty...her roommate at Egle. Mary Jo was such a warm and giving person and I am thankful we had the chance to get to know her and her family. Condolences to the family, she was a rare gem. We will miss her smiling face and kind words.
