    We are so sad for your family & our prayers are with you. We know Mary Jo is at peace with God and that is a comfort in this very difficult time. All our love.

    My prayers and sympathy go to her family and friends. I went to nursing school with Mary Jo and enjoyed seeing and visiting with her at our many reunions.

    My deepest condolences to Mary Jo’s wonderful, loving family and all of her friends and other loved ones. I was fortunate and blessed, thanks to Julie/Terry and Kathy, as well as Ann, John and Karen, to have met and gotten to know Mary Jo many, many years ago. Although I had not seen her in quite some time, as many miles have separated us all, her gracious and loving spirit, smile and sense of humor have always remained fresh in my mind. With all of my prayers and love, Michael
