    Jo, “Miss Keogh” I feel so privileged to have known you and supported you for all those years. I will always remember that cheeky giggle and grin and your amazing singing. No matter how bad my day had been I always knew there was one person I could count on that would be happy to see me – I couldn’t get up the path without you calling out for me to tell me about your day. I have so many good memories with you I will cherish forever. You were always the bigger lady – so grown up. Your really good friend Hayley (support worker)

    Gorgeous Jo! I will forever remember your contagious laugh! Your excitement when you saw my Dad saying ‘Dr Jenner’ with a big smile! And my favourite memory of you saying ‘I beg your pardon, I thought you were my garden’! You would always giggle after saying that! Sleep peacefully gorgeous girl! ❤️

    Your beauty, innocence & zest for life has been shared with me over many years by your adored Aunty Shellie. Even though I have never met you, I feel your gentle, loving being has become part of me. Thank you for being a “ray of sunshine” in so many lives, especially Mali, Harry, Simon, Betty and Shellie’s. “Brighten the Beyond Jo”! ☆☆☆☆☆ Jen

    I’ll always remember Jo creating memorable moments around her. Her laugh was so infectious you couldn’t help but join in. Her curiosity, thoughts and actions created wonderful things for the people in her life! She always entertained with stories she loved to share. It will be easy to remember her giggles, her love of colour and Disney movies and that smile. God bless Jo xx
