    Thank you Joanne, for the years of friendship you offered my grandmother. She so enjoyed the work you did together and the Senior Informer and your nightly phone calls. I know that she will miss them dearly. I will carry the fond memories of bringing you portions of our family meals and returning with farm fresh eggs or candy as a "thank you".

    Joanne you are like a shining star- some nights not visible-but always brilliant. You smiled with your eyes-straight from the heart. Go with our other angels who left us, they will guide you home to Our Lord. KB
