I was so shocked to learn today (Jan 11) that Juanita had passed away.  When I was a frequent visitor at the nursing home to be with my sister, I frequently looked in on Juanita when she was there.  I'm saddened by the loss of your mother and a wonderful woman.  She was a person I enjoyed talking with.  My sister passed away October 8, so I didn't know Juanita was still a resident there.  Heaven is rejoicing her presence.

MOUNTAIN MEADOWPEDESTAL ARRANGEMENT was sent by Neil Anthony.

Danny, Our thoughts are with you and your family. Your Mother was always welcoming and kind to me. Some of my earliest memories are of my Mother visiting with her in the kitchen of the old house in Mount Pleasant. I still remember your Mom and Dad comforting my Mother when my Father passed. I remember how your Mother was protective of me when you and Eric tried to get me to eat the bay or basil leaf in her three-way chili. It will be tough, but you will get through this and carry on like your Mother and Father would want you to. Keep telling bad jokes. Your Mom would want you to be happy. Neil, Charlotte, and the Anthony Family
