My deepest sympathy to Bob, Kelly and Laura. Although we lost touch after the move to Auburn I have such fond memories of JoAnne from our time serving together on various PTA boards and I so miss the monthly lunches we use to share after our girls went off to college. I was blessed by the time I spent with her as she was a great sounding board when I needed a wise and caring friend. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. May your special memories provide comfort and God’s love give you peace and strength as you grieve. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
