    Your mom was such a joy to spend time with at any of the Jordan get togethers. She was always so friendly and kind. We are so grateful that she had such a long, happy life with her children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews close by. She, your dad, Lauretta and Joe are square dancing up a storm in heaven! May you all find comfort and peace in knowing she is in Paradise!

  4. Cheryl condolence:

    My heart goes out to the family! Longevity is certainly a blessing, but death at any age is too soon. Death is unnatural and not a part of God’s original purpose, so for good reason the Bible calls death an enemy- one that God through Jesus Christ will soon eliminate (1 Corinthians 15:26). May this hope bring the family comfort during this difficult time. Click on the link for more comforting thoughts:
