Braun Family Cousins, I was sorry to hear about Aunt Jo's passing last week. I have very fond memories of Jo's and Ray's hospitality whenever I would stop while passing through. Jo always wore a smile and insist on feeding me. I was glad that son had a chance to meet Jo at a reunion 2 years ago. Phillip Jardon
