I had just pulled out a Christmas Angel for our tree that Jo had given my son, Rob, in 1990 when he was one of the angels in the Best Christmas Pageant Ever at the Sandwich Opera House. It was personalized to/from and is a wonderful memory of our time with Jo as Director of that program. She was organized, kind and made the work of putting on a production fun for all involved esp for a 10 year old boy! Our family extends deepest sympathy to you all.
