Joanie will always inhabit a place deep in my heart. As a young boy in a time when I was truly suffering from the loss of my older brother Barry her/your home brought me solace . It was a warm home filled with love comfort and humor. The cooking smells from your home/Joanies kitchen were truly the first real awesome food smells this young 10 yr.old catholic irishman ever encountered. Your house, being set deep into the woods made it magical and welcoming as a guest. Somehow "Guest" doesn't properly describe the experience....it was more intimate and inclusive. It just all felt so different from a house busting with 10 kids and scarse resources.
I never expressed this to you all or Joanie (she would probably think I was Ediie Haskeling her )haaa, I just wanted you to know I realized things weren't perfect...they never are...but Joanie always took the time to show a genuine interest in me and eveyone else....and she loved to bust my chops ...which I loved...We used to have this little game where she would try to tell if I was lying....ie: telling her Casy Stangle used to live in our house I just didn't tell her it wasn't the baseball guy but an ordinary citizen....well she blabbed it all over the neighbor hood... When I finally set her straight she gave me that "Joanie look" and I thought I was Banished....well after sweating me she finally broke into a smile....and from that day on my name...only to her was; "Chris Brown!! " or even better "THAT Chris Brown !!!". So I always looked forward to teasing her, making her blush or laugh.
Know this : She was a wonderful loving Mother and I see some of her in each and every one of you. It was a priviledge knowing her and feeling her Love,,,,Plus she was Beautiful to me.....
Find solace and peace in this ; If you believe..........We will all be together again before you know it. On that side our time here is just a tick of the clock. Peace......I can't wait to see her again someday.....
