  1. To The Family: My deepest sympathies. My friendship with Joanie, will be missed more than anyone will know. She was like my second mother and I will truly miss talking to her. But I know that she will be with her beloved Bob and Joe as they were ready for her to join them and settle their horsey-ness down. I can just see them meeting her and giving her a piece of their minds and asking her how come she took so long getting there. And her answer would be, because I had things to do.
    You can now rest side by side and know that “WE” will be ok as we know that all of you are together.

    Rest now, Joanie! You deserve it. Just remember you are in our “hearts” forever.
