I am sorry to hear about Juanita.  Our families go back a long way and I have some good childhood memories of Juanita and the family.  Mom always thought so much of Juanita and she checked on Mom many times when she was having her medical issues.  I am sorry that I will not be able to attend the services.  Debbie and I are in Bar Harbor Maine.  You are in my thoughts and prayers.
