  1. Leslie and family: Again I want to express my condolences to you all. When Bruce called me, I was very sad to hear about JoAnn’s passing but also relieved to know that she is free. I did send an email to our Centennial ’58 classmate data base with the sad news. I cannot make it to the service this morning but have received info for the live streaming of the service. I will be watching. I have also passed that info on to our classmate data base so that any classmates who are out of town and can’t be there in person can also watch the live stream. JoAnn was a beautiful person and a good friend. You are in our prayers!
