Charlie, Shelia, and Chip, Jeff and I were so sorry to hear of the passing of Juanita. I am in FL with Jeff because I lost my husband on March 10 and needed a change of scenery. I wish I could be there with all of you because Jeff and I really loved Juanita. I was remembering all the Sunday dinners at Momma Riley’s. Jeff was laughing yesterday about the time he recorded her laugh and drove people crazy playing it over and over again. I reminded him that her mother and Ma Taylor were best friends so we go back three generations. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers and that we love you. Rest In Peace, Juanita.

Even though I have only known Ms. Juanita for a short time I found her to be extremely determined and full of life. She was a gracious hostess and had the gift of conversation that is so valuable. I know she will be thought of daily by those that loved her and I have to believe that she will still bring them a smile. In loving memory, Tracy L. Oberst
