Hi Sharon, I am so sorry to read about your mothers passing. She was quite a lady, a hard worker, kind and gentle. She did a great job raising  six kids . You are in my prayers.

Joanne was a beautiful person whose face actually shined when she smiled. I can still see it. She inspired me as a woman of amazing strength in the face of adversity who somehow weathered the loss of our beloved George and Scotty. It comforts me to believe, with all the hope in my heart, that she is with them now. She took me under her wing me when my own mother passed in 1995. She once gave me a photograph of a hydrangea plant I had given her at Easter just before we lost George. It had grown to an enormous size and was covered with blue blossoms. She called it her "Georgie Bush." I also remember that Joanne was a great hugger! At this time of loss in the cruel face of COVID 19, we could all use many hugs. So, I close my eyes, I see her smiling face and feel the spirit of her warm embrace. My deepest sympathy and gratitude to her family for sharing your wonderful mother with me. Sincerely,
Merrie Watters
