I am so sorry for your loss. Joanne was a beautiful caring person. She always cared about others and how to help others. I remember how she would take us out to movies and to McAllen. When we were small we would go eat thanksgiving diner at her house because we didn't know how cook the meal. She was such a hard working person. I remember living with you all over the summer in California. She managed to work and take care of her mom moving to Texas situation. She even made time for us kids when we were in California. She took us to beach, zoo, Disneyland, and other fun things to do. She celebrated my birthday when I was so far away from home. She tried to make me feel better when I was homesick. She had such a big heart.
Thank you Joanne for being the person that you were. Thank you for caring so much. We love you and you will be missed.
Girls we love you. We are family. We are here for you. May the Lord give you strength to deal with all you are going thru.

Joanne was a wonderful Christian friend. She allowed my husband Lionel and I to be a part of her family when we lived in Texas. She made us feel very welcomed in her home. I will never forget her, and I look forward to seeing her in glory.
