We are so sorry to hear about your loss of your wife and mother. We first knew Jo Ann way back in the 1970’s. She helped with the John Thurston auctions and was the cashier. She was always such a good friend to mom and dad. Please know that dad felt so thankful to have her working for him. He could always count on her. There were so many great memories and happy times spent with her in the past years. We know she will be missed so very much by all of you in her family. We loved your mother too and will miss her also. We will be praying for you all and may God give you comfort now and into the future. John 14:1-3

Annabell Thurston & Patricia Bolen
