Liz, the service was beautiful for your mother. I know how much you will miss her as I do my mother. I never met her, but knowing you, she must have been a funny, wise mother and grandmother. My prayers are with all of you. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 Rita DeBord

I’m so sorry I could not attend the service yesterday but I just watched it online. What a beautiful celebration of such a wonderful person!! I only got to care for Jody for a short time but in that time we became very close and enjoyed my visits every time. I will miss her stories and that wonderful laugh ❤️ I am honored to have been a part of her life if even for such a short moment. Thank you for letting me care for her the best I could 🙏🏻❤️You will all be in my thoughts and prayers

Jody and my mom-Ann Rivere have been dear friends for over 50 years! I got to know sweet Jody too! I was privileged to attend their “Little Ten” meetings. I heard several of Jody’s stories and poems! She could make us laugh so hard! Beth Arnold, Jody, and Mom were dear friends. Jody will be dearly missed, but I know she has reunited with her beloved husband, son, brother, and son in law. No doubt she is the life of the party! May God comfort you all as you go forward with the beautiful family and memories she leaves. Lynn Coursey
