Cards of Thanks

Martinez family

Our family would like to express how appreciative we are for all the love and support we have received from our community during this difficult time. We know just how special JoJo was and is, but we were also blown away at  how many lives he truly has touched. We used to tease him and call him the “mayor” and ask how many votes he received on different days, because he never met a stranger. Now we know how many votes he had received after all. May we ask all of you to take what he has taught each of you and apply it in your own lives. As Terri said, “Live as JoJo did.”

I know everyone had the best intentions, but just thoughts for the future, please refrain from putting the information on social media before the family is even notified. It’s devastating to hear from a third party.

We are truly grateful for the love, support and generosity from family and friends, and we are blessed to live in such a great community.
