My thoughts are with Malcolm, Andrew and family. Joanne was one of the sweetest people I've ever met and I was lucky to call her a friend. She'll be dearly missed.

JoAnne was my person. She was such a wonderful friend to me, like a second mom really. She taught me to always think of others and it is better to give than receive. She also taught me to knit and crochet. She was such a creative and beautiful person. I'm so lucky to have spent time with her. To Malcolm, Andrew and all of JoAnnes family, all my love and condolences. She will be missed tremendously.
