Condolences to the Family and Friends Joan
We were Classmates from the Fifth Grade at Porterfield through High School. Our special friendship was at Porterfield with only 5 in our grade, only 26 in the School. It was a special kinship that develop between students. Although years separated visits, whenever they happen it was an easy conversation and laughs as stories were re-told. Joan was a warm and caring person and touch a lot of lives through the years. Her faith was strong and supported her through the tough times. Rest in Peace, my Friend.
