Joan, I have shared many happy and sad memories with you and your family over the past 40 years. I remember when you married CJ and your wedding reception at the Sidney Lanier Cottage like it was yesterday. It seems only yesterday that we were younger and enjoying our time together. CJ was nice enough to welcome me into his life as part of your extended family.
I enjoyed picking at him and seeing him rub the top his head as he got a sly grin on his face after he realized he was being teased.
Over the years I have come to know many of the family members and wish to extend my condolence to all of you.
Joan, I sorry I am not there in person at this time but please know I carry you in my heart always. Love Lee
