When I was first hired at the Harbor Police Department, Joni was there to welcome me with a big smile. She was so endearing and truly cared about those around her. Joni, it was an honor to have met you.

It was great knowing her and her traveling companion dudly. She was a great loveable person. She had a zest for life and made you laugh at the craziest things. I enjoyed being able to work with her in san diego.

Where do I start, Joni and I had a special connection. We met when she was with the Scripps Mesa RSVP. She was always pushing for more this and more of that, with sweetness. I was fortunate to help her sell her home in Scripps Ranch, for top dollar of course, since Joni was in charge. Whenever she came back to San Diego, we go to lunch for livaa (liver) and onions. I got to visit her in New Mexico during Easter 2012. She was very sick at that time. I'm sure she is getting things organized in heaven. Love you and miss you Joni!
