Our hearts are with you all during this very difficult time. We wish we could be there and hold each one of you. I would like to share a Eskimo Proverb to help comfort you.
Perhaps they are not stars
But rather openings in heaven
Where the love from our lost ones
Pours through and shines down upon us
To let us know they are happy
Words seem inadequate to express the sadness we feel about Jojo.
May your heart and soul find peace and comfort.
With our most sincere sympathy.
