1. As the Belgian extended family of the Cokes, we have met Jo a few times on our visits. We remember especially one Christmas spent together – which was so wonderful. What I remember most about Jo is her sense of humour, but also her kindness and warmth. She clearly had a golden heart and now she can live on in all of yours. Sending all our strength your way xxx

  2. I will always think of being with Jo over dinner – either one she had just cooked, or eating out; either with Jayne and Derek when we were all much younger, or with our own children as well more recently. Through all the years that I have known her, over food especially, Jo made us all laugh so much with her stories and her comments and her special little ways. I could not count the number of meals that we have all found ourselves incapable, in tears of laughter. Wonderful times with one of the most loving people I have known.
    We will all miss you so much, Jo. Until we meet again. I love you so much. John x

  3. Your Mum was lovely; so full of positive energy . I remember Jayne telling me about a house move the family made, where Jo had all the furniture and possessions unpacked and arranged in the new house by mid afternoon – an astonishing feat!
    There was such an obvious bond of love and teasing affection between Jo and Derek . They made a brilliant team.
    They were so proud, (not in a boastful way) of their children and grandchildren. You each gave them a lot of pleasure.
    A life very well lived.
    With love of love, Stephen and Daphne
