Im sorry to hear of Fannie Jo's passing. I remember her as always a starter on our girl's basketball team and as a very pretty girl with dark curls. Our families are connected as my cousin Patsy Parks married her brother Bo Lankford. Our high school class was very small and I remember our whole class as like a family of siblings, something I cherish. My sincere condolences to her family.

I can imagine she would be a wonderful homemaker. She was always cleaning up after me in Mrs. Parker's Home EC Class. She was always kindhearted and was, incidentally, the star of our Senior Play, playing a hillbilly gal.

Jo was wonderful. I always enjoyed chatting with her. She came from a very good family. I’m so sorry Tom & I are out of state & can’t attend the services. Jason, we love you.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Jason so sorry to hear of Mrs Jo. I always loved running into her throughout the years. She attended my wedding many moons ago and always reminded me she came. I loved her dearly and she will be deeply missed. Praying you find comfort in knowing she is in her heavenly home. Much love Sandy
