  10. I still remember my first ever sleepover was at your house. I woke up in the middle of the night scared and homesick, you walked me home without a single complaint and made me feel safe. That was 20 years ago. You will forever be loved and missed Jo. Heaven truly gained an angel.

  19. Oh JoJo, Pete and I will never forget you, as long as the sun rises and the sun sets you will always be there. I can still see that smiling face and that voice saying saying come in Lis as I would come and check on Duncan. You always believed in me when others were cruel, your support meant so much to me. The jokes and the fun you and Pete would have over the bar and the love you gave Nicole will always be remembered.
    To all of Jo’s family We wish we could ease your pain, hold onto your happy memories they will help you get you through the hardest of days. Love to you all always Peter (Browny) and Lisa Brown
