Beautiful, smart, funny, dedicated in helping all, thank you for your wonderrful friendship since we were 13 years old when I moved into your neighborhood.  And thank you and Jack for visting me when ever I moved no matter what the distance.  I have always carried you in my heart and in my memories and will continue to do so.  We never shared a class together but we shared a lot of life on those long (1 mile) walks to and from high school each day.  One of my best memories was sitting in the hot tub in our back yard at night watching the shooting stars high above the Catalina Mountains, holding a glass of wine we never finished (LOL), while sharing stories and catching up on life.  Just a few short weeks ago we were talking and shortly thereafter you were gone!  Ouch!  I enjoyed finding cards just for you and listening to your cheerful comments on special things you noticed.  I'll miss our get-togethers at the Zebra in Port Huron upon my visits.  Rest well until we meet again.  Love, Clare (Clarene)

Clarene said it all in her first 3 words above, beautiful, smart, funny.  I only saw Joann a few times since that long ago graduation day.  Two things that never changed, that smile and the laughter., not to be forgotten.
