Ron and family, sending you our prayers. Joan and I grew up together in Johnston, Iowa where we both attended school. My first memory of Joan was early elementary age. She was riding her bike down my street and I challenged her for a race. The road was 1/4 a mile dead end and we started at one end and was to race to the other..Think she beat me by at least 50 yards. Last time I would ever challenge her to anything.. She always had a terrific smile..Remember the good times and how much she loved you and the kids.
