Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Anne Marie and family, I knew JoJo long ago, when we both sang on the Spirit of Boston together in 1992! I just learned of his passing today and send you so many loving thoughts and prayers. To this day I still hear that beautiful voice. Sending you my most heartfelt condolences.

I am saddened to hear of Jojo's passing. I just heard of his passing from Berklee Today's Alumni magazine. JoJo and I were classmates at Berklee in the early 90's and we graduated the same year. I remembered JoJo as a talented singer. My condolences to the family of JoJo David. R.I.P.

Anne Marie,

My heart goes out to you and Madeline as you grieve the great loss of JoJo. Although it has been a long time since we last visited, our soulful time together clearly stands out in my memory. JoJo's smile, his laughter, his joy, and his positive energy enhanced the warmth and comfort of your hospitality. The Light JoJo embodied will never dim.

JoJo rests now in deep peace. May you and Madeline know his peace and, there, find your own restful peace.

With love,
Ahshua Bolton

The first time I walked into Sacred Heart over five years ago, I heard Jojo's voice and new I was home. He had a special gift for creating a prayerful, reverent yet warm and welcoming
atmosphere for the liturgy. He is a gift who all who knew him. You all have our prayers.

I am one of the many nurses who took care of Jojo over the years on the step down unit. We are all heartbroken over his loss. He was such a wonderful soul who was so upbeat and positive. He always gave us a smile and is someone we will truly never forget. Love to you and Madeline during this difficult time.

I am so sorry to hear of this news. JoJo was always so nice and considerate in my brief dealings with him. The following is my prayer for him.

Eternal Creator. Thank you for the gift of JoJo.

May we see his beauty forever in the raising hope of the glorious sun and hear his voice the gentle winds of the day. When the sun sets over the today's lowering horizon, may he rest on the brightest star free from this life's confines knowing the beauty of all tomorrows with your Son.
Rest In Eternal Peace precious soul.

My condolences to AnneMarie, Madeline and all of Jojo's family.
