  • I worked with Joann & Carol at the Branding Iron in the late 60’s & we always had a good time. I enjoyed knowing & working with them. Unfortunately I think I had only run into each of them once since then, so we pretty much had lost track of each other. I am so sorry for your families loss & send my heartfelt & deepest sympathy to all. Karen Millhoan George
