    Our sweetest regrets to the family. We have known each of you for a long time and we are saddened by your loss. We believe that every person prior to their birth is a free spirit that is allowed to choose their parents and, as a result, the family to which they are born. This family helps shape and build their character and prepares them for their journey on earth. Rest assured that JoFaye picked you to be her family and that her love for each of you is deep and true. May you be filled with warmth and love when you recall the memories of your loved one because we are sure that JoFaye is thinking and watching over you now.

  21. I will truly miss my big sister, even though we did not see each other often enough we always kept in contact via phone or email, those times I will miss. I have so many fond memories of JoFaye and I see alot of her in myself. We have alot in common, she would always say to me you remind me so much of myself, she will be missed dearly. She is now an angle in heaven and will be looking down on all of us, if for some reason this is for all of us siblings you have a pebble or something fall from sky & hit you in head dont worry the sky is not falling it is just JoFaye and Dad trying to be funny. I love you sis and will miss you more than you know. Love your sister, Teressa
