Memories

Joanne was a great lady, she was an awesome friend to my grandmother, Marilyn, before she passed away last month. She would always watch over her for us and would ask how her OK grandkids were. Truly an amazing lady and now another wonderful ANGEL in heaven. We would stop by for a quick "Hello" whenever we come north to see grandma. She will be truly missed.
