Joannie and I are the last of our "gang" of girls that ran around together from the time we were Freshmen in High School 13 years old I think. I am going to miss her quick smile, her hugs when we got together which hasn't been often this past year since I live in Peoria and we're both in our "Golden Years". Love you Joannie and I'll miss you.
