"Thank you so much Keri, for letting me know about
your lovely mother. I only knew her through the
computer but she was always good at cheering me up
when I was down. She was always so positive and
uplifting. She was a great lady and will be missed
by all of us. ( I have one of her Christmas cards
also.) Best wishes always..... barbara (catlvr099)"

Despite her health issues she never had a negative attitude. She was always looking forward to a better tomorrow. Now her "better tomorrow" has arrived and we are left to mourn our loss. May you rest in peace Joanne. I will miss you."
