Mary Jo was a member of our Monday afternoon bridge group in Bonao in the Dominican Republic. We all had children going to Centro Educacional in our townsite of many different nationalities. We shared our smiles and our tears. We were each other's families in a tropical island far from our birth land and immediate family. Consequently we celebrated holidays and cultures from many lands Lots of chuckles and memories to reflect upon. I remember Mary Jo and her family with fond memories. Rest in peace.
