Mary & I would like to extend our deepest sympathy to Joann's family at this difficult time. I can remember visiting as a young boy and playing with my cousins. It's sad that as we grow older we tend to go our separate ways and lose touch with those who were so much a part of our young lives. May Joann rest in peace and her memories live on and give her family strength.
