Each of you played such a major role in her life and I am forever grateful for all of you. You know what you've done for her. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Juanita loved watching sports, in particular 'HER Spurs and 49ers' as she put it. She also had a love for the Cowboys, but in her words "back when they were a real team, before they did Tom Landry wrong" She felt VERY strongly about this and made it known to all who cheered for them that she did not like them. She attended Roy Miller high school and took pride in the motto 'Once a Buc Always a Buc!'.
