    Joanne added so much to my life and will be truly missed. Although I did not see her often after moving to Montana and particularly after her sister/my mother died, I knew she was thinking of me and loving me and my family. She was my rock through breast cancer. I had some of the best experiences of my life visiting Joanne and Jerry in Michigan and in Florida. Miss you, love you, be at peace, Joanne.

    I first met your mom last fall. What an exceptional person I immediately thought. So bright, so witty, so loving of her family. She made me feel very welcome from Day 1. I know that she will be greatly missed. Xoxo
