    My sweet aunt! She was with my mother and me the day I was born and has always been there for me ever since. I loved her so very much!

    I met Juanita when Lee Ann and I became best friends 42 years ago. She was such a talented seamstress, along with her other wonderful attributes. My mother had taught me how to sew, but Juanita taught me how to do alterations, especially on men’s clothing. It was a valuable talent she shared with me as I was able to stay home with my children and do alterations for extra money. She was so very patient and kind while she instructed me. I will never forget her kindness and I loved her laugh. She treated me like another daughter and I will miss her.
