    Jolita was a generous and loving lady as we saw from the way she adopted Ed’s girls as her own grandchildren. That spoke to our hearts. She was surely loved by her children as is evidenced by this touching obituary. It is to them that we send our condolences, and to Bob.

    To a little girl in the 1950s, Jo was magical – the coolest teenager ever. Years later she and Dick brought us through Grandpa’s sudden death. They were amazing. I hope they have found each other. 💙
