Dearest Tommy, beautiful Alexa, and the Ringwood and Jacaman families, I was fortunate to meet your beloved J.J. the last time I visited my most special Laredo for a Class of 61 Martin High School Reunion. What I remember about J.J. was that she was lovely to look at, a delight to meet, and seemed to light up the whole room. Though I only met J.J. that evening, she left an unforgettable impression. I was unaware, until after her passing that J.J. had dealt will illnesses these last many years. My heart goes out to all of you at this difficult time. May you be comforted by the many wonderful memories you shared with J.J. and the joy of knowing that she is now In the healing arms of Our Lord. With sincere sympathy, Charlotte Compton Larson

Alexa & Family, My heart is broken with the untimely passing of JJ. She holds a very special place in my heart and memories that can never be replaced. That tan suburban of hers held so many miles of fun...including some of our best kept secrets. She loved us all in spite of our young, reckless antics and always provided a safe haven in her heart and home. I know her Earthly presence will forever be missed but find comfort in knowing she is resting with our Father, just as we will some day. I am sending all my love, hugs and prayers. I wish I could be there.
