She will be missed dearly always loved Jodi and spending time with her ❤ she deff did some amazing handy work to help mom with decorating festival of trees her artistic touch was always a sight to see.

She taught my husband and I to weave. Such a great teacher and so talented. RIP Miss Jodi until we meet again.

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let the perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
