Joanna, I'm going to miss our special friendship and the bond that we had when we were kids growing up together. Some of my favorite memories are us dancing to 'Elvira' by Oak Ridge Boys, and taking the fishing boat to the end of the road to get to the bus stop when it would flood. You were more like a sister to me than a cousin. You gained your wings yesterday. Fly high and please watch over us. Tell our loved ones that have passed on that I love them, especially my baby boy.
