I was very saddened to learn of Jo's passing. She was a wonderful warm caring woman who showed tremendous courage in her long battle with her terrible disease. While doing so she managed to squeeze every bit of life out of her tragically too short time. I will remember her smile, her bravery and her zest for life with great fondness. My deepest condolences to her family.

Jo was the kind of friend that was always willing to help. I remember when she and Leroy helped me move while we were transitioning back to Texas. I explained to both of them that there wasn't much to move -- I had carefully gone through the house and divided what should be sent to storage and what we needed at our temporary home. I was so proud of my organization skills. The only thing I hadn't checked was my own closet. I thought Jo and Leroy would die laughing when they had to move my 7th grade Camp Fire girl Indian dress to the rent house! The tables were turned when we helped Jo and Leroy move to their new home in Dover. We filled Roger's little pickup with their bed. The bed was so big and the truck was so small. I was afraid the truck was going to tip over and had to make Leroy drive! More laughter! Jo didn't even hesitate when I asked if Aaron could come and stay with them so he could attend the Caesar Rodney prom. I really owed her one after that! We treasure our friendship with you all. Even though we've been far away for many years, we still feel like you are near because you have such a big spot in our hearts. Jo, we know where you are. We will see you again soon.

My deepest condolences to the family. While I did not get to work with Jo I did get to see her from time to time when she would come visit her husband. Just from those encounters I could tell that Jo was a kind, gentle person. And in working with Leroy I know he loved and cherished Jo. In this time of sorrow words can not express how sorry I am for the family to lose such a special person. But one thing is for sure that Jo will make an amazing angel.

Know that my thoughts and prayers are with the entire Hathcock family in this difficult time. Maggie always spoke of Jo with such adoration and admiration. It is obvious that through her profession and her courageous battle with cancer, she lived a life worth emulating. We love you guys and are lifting you all up as you celebrate the life of this remarkable woman. Love, Katie (and Tim)

What a wonderful person, I so enjoyed working with you before your retirement. The world of nursing will never be the same as we have lost one of the greatest and most caring people that carried the initials of RN behind their name.
