Can it really be 7 years already? I can only imagine how you & Dad embraced when he joined you in May. We all miss you both so much here on earth but it brings me peace knowing you’re together again. 
I love you Mom & miss you so. ❤️

Strange as it seems, just the other day I came across Joanne's email in my addresses. I have never removed it. I think of her often. So often she was there just at the right time. Miss you Joanne. I know you are dancing in heaven free of all pain and machines and in great joy.  Love you.

Joanne, you have been missed, I think about what your friendship has meant to me over the years and how much I've missed you this past year. I hope there's joy, peace and happiness there and that the casino there always has to pay you the jackpot for all that you put up in your friendship and help and assistance you always had for those that were close to you. You will always be part of me

Just got the news. It is with a heavy heart that I write, Joanne was a very special person and helped us with games and filled in when someone on BFG couldn't take care of things. She never complained, was always there when you needed her. I have had the pleasure of being her computer friend for many years. Rest in peace my sister, I love you.

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)

            Love Nannie

I never had the honor of meeting Joanne in person but it was plain to see what an awesome lady she was. What struck me the most was her optimistic outlook on life. 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.

Thank you Keri for letting us know. This is so sad to hear. Joanne always thought of others before herself. Always had an uplifting word. Always helping when we had an overloaded list at BFG. I will miss you very much. God be with all your family & may they be proud to know the love others had for you. Rest in peace my dear friend. You were special & will be missed. Diane in Canada
