She was loved and will be missed by many. It is very comforting to know that she is in heaven rejoicing and living it up with no more pain, sorrow or losses. She is surrounded by her family that have gone before her and best of all she is in the presence of her precious savior Jesus Christ. I love you Aunt Joann! I will see you again. Please give my sweet daddy a big ole’ hug and kiss for me. See you when I see you!
