I will miss those telephone calls with you tinkling your bracelet on the phone telling me of your adventures in real estate,your lovely family & your new beau etc. To all the family Anna, Samantha ,Olivia & James & friends I meet in 2001 my heart & thoughts go out to you all. Yes, this so so so special lady will be sadly missed in my heart.
      I will never forget Jo Giles.
      Love Bill

    • A Race Well Run

      The race has been run. You ran it particulalry well - with courage, committment and flair. You have helped others run it with your support and encouragement.
      RIP girl - you have earned it.

    • When I first started advertising on CTV through work I was so excited about the prospect of working alongside Jo.
      She was and has always been the most energetic, warm, and welcoming individual and made me feel very included in the extended CTV family.
      My thoughts go out to her family and everyone who has been lucky enough to know her.
      Love to you Jo, you'll be greatly missed.
