  1. Steven and family,

    So sorry for your loss. The very first time I met Joann, she was at Shirley’s. 99% of the time they were always together and your mom was always smiling. May her warmth fill your hearts forever as a gift from God. Sending prayers your way.

    Joann, I know you and I would have had a good “laugh” today. I treasure the times we spent studying the Bible together and discussing our faith in Christ. The laugh would have come today, when my car broke down on the way to your Memorial Service. I can just hear you say, “Well, why didn’t you walk? That’s no excuse!” And George couldn’t bring me, because he had to take his sister JoAnn to a doctor’s appointment. I know you remember her; that other JoAnn. My condolences to your family, and prayers for their comfort. See you, my friend, in that “Great Gettin’ Up Morning.” Love, Cyndi Snokhous
