Kathy, please accept my condolences for both you and your family. You and I spoke quite often of our mothers, who were the same age. What a blessed life she lived, due in part to the LOVE and SUPPORT that you and your family provided. May GOD continue to strengthen during this time of transition. Love you!

So sorry to hear about Joan.

We’ve been sorority sisters since we were 16 yrs old.

I’ll miss her so very much, as we all will.

I hope she saves me a seat up there.
