I’m not surprised JoAnn. You and Tommy were 2 peas in a pod. I met you at SCBC in 1995. You had a cast on your leg. You were so easy to be around. I learned how to do Hospitality at church because of you and all these sweet women. Dot Davidson, Edie Silvus, Nell Pennington, and Ruby Biel and you and I. You were the last of the group of ladies who blessed me more than yall ever knew. When y’all moved to First Baptist I really missed seeing you two. Now you are together again. Love you JoAnn. I will miss seeing you. ❤️

Joanne and her husband Tommy were special, before I married the love of my life,I meet them, that told me he had a wonderful family. Down through the years, George and myself, and our family continued to have a special relationship. The many phone calls and visits were always exciting! Tom and Joanne were some of our favorite people, may you rest together now in heaven. Love you, kathy
