Aunt Jo had a special place in my heart and I believe I had a special place in hers because I was named for her. And she is the one who introduced me to the "Cat who" series of books. Not only did we share a name, we shared a love of reading. My thoughts and prayers are with Rod, Becky and Randy. Love you all and sorry I can't be with you at this time. Alice Claudine Kriss
