Deb, Mark and family. I'm sorry to see that your mother has passed. She always made us feel welcome in your house. I still remember her taking us to Mohican State Park and Dairy Queen in her MG with the top down. She will be missed.

Joann was one of my favorite sweet, chatty., and yes, Kiki and her birds were so loved by her. I was the recipient of many cards/note cards from Joann over the years .. She made very special friends at the apt. Complex and she will be sorely missed, but remembered fondly.
