I am so sorry for your pain, Joanne was such a kind person. When my Mother and I would go out with Aunt Dolores, she would always tell us stories about Joanne and how she helped cats, she knew how much I cared about animals and enjoyed hearing about Joanne over lunch! I'd like to think she was greeted by some fury friends , that passed before her.

I spoke with Joanne almost everyday sometimes two or three times a day. We would talk about our grandchildren and our children. And of course our love for cats.
It was my pleasure meeting you.

Joanne I was so sad to hear this sad news. You were always a joy to see when you came into the office, whether it be a check up for your kitties or with an issue. You always took great care of the cats you and Joe took in and loved them. You always had a great smile and a joy to work with. You went through a rough time and when you came back to the office and looked great, I was hoping you were in the clear. Joe seemed so strong, but I'm sure it was just for us when he came in with a kitty. You will be sadly missed by everyone you ever met because you are that type of person. Joe to you and your family you are in my thoughts and prayers during this time.
