    I would like to communicate the loyalty, devotion and caring that I observed as Mia looked after her Mother over the years that I have known Mia. Mia’s Mom was high on her priority list. I know that she will be missed by all of her family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    Mary Jo was an exceptional woman. She was so talented, knowledgeable and led such an interesting life. She had a good sense of humor and we had many laughs together. I feel so fortunate to have worked with her and to have been her friend. She will be missed. My condolences to her family.
