She was a wonderful lady and will be missed by everyone who knew her.

  2. My precious best friend,lm going to miss you so much that words cannot express. Cali misses you too but lm hugging her as we hugged.

  3. My thoughts and prayers to the family, many of whom I have had the opportunity to meet through Jonell. From the first day I met her, I felt I had known her all my life. She was family! She was my giggling mischievous buddy along with my mom at all the Newcomer events. I took her betting advice at all the Derby parties. She, mom and I had a ball shopping in Bowling Green. She was a wonderful friend and partner in crime to my mom. My life has been forever enriched having known and loved her. She will always be with me…I can hear that laugh now.

  4. So sorry to not have my sweet neighbor. She was a joy to know. Always ready for an adventure.Our Derby Parties will not be the same without her.
