    I was so saddened to hear about Joann. I know she fought a long hard battle and there is peace in knowing her struggles are over. Joann and I grew up together at Bethesda and was my first friend when we started first grade together. She was a beautiful person inside and out and even though we had not kept in contact in later years, I will always have a special place in my heart for her. I have been flooded with so many memories since I heard of her death. Jerry and Mary Lee, please know that yall and the rest of the family are in my thoughts and prayers.
