My heart was saddened by the news of “maw maw jo’s“ passing. Growing up with Lauren, Rachel and Constance all of my memories with them were with her, she was a surrogate grandmother to me! My thoughts and prayers are with all of you as the world is certainly not the same without this amazing woman in it! Much love!

Ms. Joline was such a compassionate assistant to us during my father's illness. She was with my mom, at his bedside, in his home, when he passed away, in 1985. We always appreciated her support. You have my condolences.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm sending my deepest sympathy and a comforting thought to the family of Mrs. Joline Ardoin. The Father of tender mercies and the GOD of all comfort, comforts us in all our tribulation. GOD made hope for the dead possible by sending His only begotten son Jesus Christ to die for us. And Jesus promised that the dead will live again. Read John 5:21, 28, 29.
