Something red for my big sis. I remember the red salvia you planted every year. Red was that bold and individualistic side of your spirit.

We all have lost a very beautiful and humble friend, mother and confidante 💔 😢. May we all find peace with the passing of this amazingly strong, vibrant lady who was a true friend to all who took the time to have Juanita in their life! We had an incredible friendship through the years and experienced many memorable and happy hours during our trips and escapades with our miniatures buddies and just our alone time together! I am a better person for having Juanita and her family in my life.
