I would take Joanne on car rides and always go the back way so that she could look at the trees, flowers and wildlife. I was single at the time and when ever she saw a man walking or riding a bike she would say there’s one for you Marsha….she always made me laugh😂😂. She sure could say the darndest things. I will cherish the memories I’ve had with her. She was a very unique and special person in my life. I always enjoyed the times we spent together. I will miss her dearly. RIP my friend.
