Heavenly Sendoff

My sweet friend Jo Hewitt left us on May 12th, and a host of friends and loved ones gathered today to remember her extraordinary life. Hot air balloons were a symbol of hope and healing for Jo during her 19 month battle with brain cancer, so the family arranged for there to be a balloon release after the memorial service. As Jo's only daughter said in closing at the service, "It's not goodbye. It's see you later." We'll miss you Jo.
