Juanita was the sweetest person to me . I got to know her when she worked for the Pink family. Ever since that time we always had wonderful conversations whenever we ran into each other. SAM YOUR MOTHER ALWAYS UPDATED ME ON YOUR LIFE. SHE WAS SO PROUD OF YOU.
Im sorry for your loss...and know your mom earned her way into heaven.
I have many fond memories spending time at Juanita's house with her son Sam when we were in school. She was a giving and caring person. My thoughts are with Sam and his family.
sorry for your loss. she was a true friend and I enjoyed working with her so much. we had many great conversations as I drove her home from work many times. am sure she will be having a lone star beer for me. she was always like a mother to me.
Juanita was an amazing lady. She always had a smile and good words to say every time we met her. I enjoy working with her she would do every thing with out a complaint, but if she did you knew it need to be looked into. When she worked in the vets. office the kids had a kitten that wasn't well and she treated it for many days, even on weekends and holidays to make it better and she did. The kids were so happy! Like I said she was amazing and will be very missed.
