Send Condolence

Our deepest sympathy to all the member of Joani\\\'s family. Joani was a dear friend and an incredibly fine person. As I have often said, although Joani had many medical issues during her adult life, neither I nor any of her friends ever heard her complain. I loved hearing her say, \\\"Hello, Darling!\\\", and I could be sure that the two of us would talk over old times and have a laugh or two. I will miss her greatly. May her name be for a blessing.
