    I loved Joanie like a sister. Glad that my last memory of her was when I took her out to lunch just before I left for England. She was FINALLY able to leave her home, so she got all dressed up (including the oxygen tank and walker), wore her jewelry and had her hair done. We went to the Blue Koi at 106th and Mission Rd. and had a great time. She seemed very happy, and we talked about how she needed to build up her strength so she could get out into her own apartment. Sadly, that’s not going to happen.

    My condolences to Paul and Bruce.
