Stephanie Jordan from Houston, TX, TX

"My deepest sympathies to the Cruz-Plata family. I worked side-by-side with Julissa early on in her career at the McDonald's Service Center. Even though we went our separate ways after leaving McDonald's, we kept in touch for throughout the years. She was a beautiful soul. I will remember her fondly for her cheerful, upbeat spirit and a smile that always shined so brightly. She was always willing to help others and her family meant so much to her. I am so deeply saddened by her death, but I know the angels in heaven are rejoicing and receiving our new Angel with open arms. Extending hugs to each of you in her family as you grieve her.God bless you all, and God speed Julissa. Soar with the angels now. Fondly, Stephanie"
