Joni was a wonderful support to my daughter in the City Connections program. She shared her love of animals with my daughter by coaching her in her volunteer at an animal shelter and helped create a positive experience for a young lady who wants to overcome her limitations and be employed working with animals some day. What a loss this must be to Joni's family. I am so sorry.
