    I miss her already. I miss that laugh of hers. I will never be able to pass the back row at church & not think of her. Our love to you dear Bill. And to you dear Amy, losing your mom will be one if the hardest thing to do. No matter how old we get we always need our moms. Our prayers are with your whole family.

    Bill, Amy, and all the sweet grandchildren I heard so many stories about over the past 22 years or so.
    Even though we didn’t talk every day or week as we did for so many years, I will miss one of the best friends I ever had. My heart is really hurting, but I am so thankful she is not hurting any more. We will meet again. Bill and Amy, so sorry I can not drive down…but my heart is with you. Praying for His peace and strength now and in coming days.

    I will miss Joanna sitting on back row, early to church listening to me practicing the organ for the late service. She heard all my mistakes. Love to Bill, Amy and all the family. She was very special!

    Bill & Amy I am heartbroken to hear of JoAnna’s passing.
    She was always such a good neighbor to Todd and I when we lived across from you.
    Her and mama can giggle like they use to about mama’s chocolate pies. We will be praying for both of you

    My heartfelt sympathy for Joanna’s family. I’ve know this sweet family since my childhood years, going to church and school with them. I’m sure Joanna and Naomi are catching up in Heaven. I wonder if Joanna will be able to get a word in edgewise! Kidding, of course, loved them both.

    Bill and Amy, my heart is so heavy this morning. I am thankful for her eternal healing after the long hard cancer battle that she fought and the promise from Jesus that our separation from those we love and are in Christ Jesus is but temporary. Love to both of you!
