My Aunt Joni (never Joanne!) 🤫 was forever young. Joni and my Uncle Tom have been dating since I was born. When I was dating my wife to be, we actually double dated with Joni and Tom. As a couple they looked like movies stars & were so much fun to be around. Joni’s love of ‘50 rock and roll was passed on to me as was Tom’s love of Opera. Joni was blessed with a beautiful daughter, Tara and her grandchildren were the love of her recent years! Joni was a huge Yankee fan and it’s fitting that they’ve suspended play for her. 😁We will miss our Aunt Joni and will continue to love our Uncle Tom. Aunt Joni I’ll always remember that beautiful smile and laugh and will picture you always around a pool with a radio blaring Doo Wops nearby. God bless you.
