Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. Mary Jo, what comes to mind when I hear that name: Gentle Kind Selfless Thoughtful Caring Honest Compassionate Courageous Persistent Practical Unique Sincere Quirky and most of all Resilient Brave Warrior.
I have had the privilege of being Mary Jo,s friend for 25 years, we hit it off immediately and have been there for each other through thick and thin, ups and downs, tough times(I think she has has more illnesses than anyone I know) and joyous times (sharing classes, graduations, marriages, new homes, and traveling). I have watched her sons grow up and watched her grow into her amazing relationship with her husband. And then, Lymphoma. Mary Jo is a freaking, hard core Brave Warrior. She has never given in or given up and her strength is Herculean. And now, Stem Cell Transplant. This journey will be unique (like Mary Jo) but it will still be familiar because she will continue to bring her kindness, persistence, caring, honesty, compassion, courage, persistence, practicality, uniqueness, sincerity, quirkyness and most of all her kickass brave warrior spirit to the game. Mary Jo everyone who knows you is with you. We are pulling for you and sending all of our thoughts, prayers, reiki and light.
