Joanne was my first childhood friend. I remember when I had birthday parties from the age of four to eight, Joanne was always there. We had many sleep overs at each other’s house as we lived diagonal from one another. We played Barbies, rode bikes , ran through the sprinklers and played jump rope. I always was so happy to be around her caring, kind spirit. She had a huge impact on who I am today. Enjoy yourself in heaven sweetheart.💕💕
