  1. JoAnn and Jerry: A piece of “your” puzzle is now missing. You were so good to her and she loved living with the two of you and next door to JL, Rick and the two boys. She was a beautiful lady and you gave her a wonderful and unlonesome life. If you need anything you know where we are.

    Love from Midge and Tom
