Juanita was a wonderful loving person who came into our lives when we needed her most. She helped raise two wonderful children who loved her like a grandmother. When Joan and Juanita and I would talk about the day she came to meet with us about being a nanny for our ch1ildren we all agreed it was something that just felt perfect. Juanita doesn't know why she felt compelled to answer our ad we are just glad she did. She was our angel sent to be a growing and positive influence in our lives.
With love, Jim, Joan, Angela and Mark Wator
