  1. Our middle child Jolinda has a smile and a laugh that is contagious! She has been the same since birth.
    Jolinda smiles brings comfort and peace to everyone around. It is her smile that is always giving others the assurance that everything will be alright. Jolinda was able to survive the death of her childhood best friend who pass away shortly after graduation with a rare disease. It is her smile that depicts her strength and pose to make the people around her live more comforting fuller lives. I recommend Jolinda Latrice smile to go across America to brighten America Smiles!
