I miss you so much Nanny

Joanne was my best friend in W Hollywood Fl back in the late 50’s.  She was a most wonderful person and I have missed her greatly over these past years.  Have searched a few times and finally found her, too late.  Rest in Peace Joanne.  I know you are in Heaven with your hubby and both of you are looking down on your sweet children.  Lots of love, Jan Moore Hughes (momma of Timmy)

My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of the loss of your mother, I know it’s not an easy time as I lost my mother years ago and my stepmother just recently.  If it wouldn’t have been for your Mom, Mrs. T as we called her years ago, I would never have learned to like sauerkraut.  I remember a New Years Day I spent with your parents and family where I learned what true sauerkraut tastes like.  Those are the good memories we cherish as we think of loved ones.  May your burden be eased at this time as you think of all the peoples lives she touched.
