Dear Joanne,
As a childhood friend we'd write to each other during vacations about girl talk, and going through Hayestown, Broadview, and DHS we shared many moments together. Times that have left me with memories I will cherish. I'll always remember your smile and laughter when I'd see you at Walmart and always. May you rest in peace knowing your families will have the support of many who will help them find strength in their memories and be there to listen, to do anything they need.

For the Sousa and Antonio Families, we are saddened for your loss.
I will always remember my childhood friend full of smiles and expectations. As an adult, I know Jo-Ann's greatest wish and joy was becoming a Mom. Her wish came true when she was blessed with Amanda and Courtney. Jo-Ann, will miss your laughter.
