    Joanne – you are missed! I know Frank Sinatra was your favorite, so it seems appropriate to quote his song here: "And now the end is here And so I face that final curtain My friend I’ll make it clear I’ll state my case, of which I’m certain I’ve lived a life that’s full I traveled each and every highway And more, much more I did it, I did it my way" Right through to the end, you did it all your way and that is how I will always remember you. Rest in peace.

    Nana, I miss you so much! I will miss talking and texting with you and listening to your great advice. You always made me laugh and had the best sense of humor. You gave the best hugs and I will always remember all the great times we have had together. Love you and we will see each other again on the other side ❤️ – Ashley, Kevin & Kevin Jr
