I will remember my cousin JoAnn for her smile, laughter, and kindness toward me. She reached out to me when she found out I was sick and made me feel better with her words of comfort and healing, even though she was suffering herself. God worked through her.

JoAnn is a dear cousin and friend. We had many wonderful times growing up together and have always kept in touch. JoAnn was always a cheerful and optimistic person. I will miss her and my sympathy and prayers go out to Tony and LInda and their family and Ed and Jean Rothrock and their families.
