  • My prayers are with you all today. We were blessed with Joan a very special lady who brightened our lives.
    I was so glad to have a nice visit with her last week. We were “pardners” in childhood following our cowboy heroes, visiting the grandparents and taking long walks, a most beautiful one in crisp fresh snow sparkling in the street lights.
    Our trails took us to different places, but we were able to enjoy sharing those wonderful memories. Til we meet again. Barbara Jean Jolliff
