When tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand, that and Angel came and called my name and took me by the hand; The angel said my place was ready, In heaven, far above, and that I would have to leave behind all those that I love. When I walked through Heaven’s gates, I felt so much at home, for God looked down, smiled and said, “Welcome Home.” So, when tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart, for every time you think of me, I’m right there in your heart.
“We’re going to miss you JoJo.” Fly high my Angel.
A private memorial for family and close friends, will be held at Keith and Iris’s house Friday, June 19th, 2020.
