    Ron and family, we would like to express our sympathy to u at Joanne passing. First Kenny and Kim were Scott and Tammy’s age and school mates. Then I ended up at Szold’s and we rode together back and forward to work. Last I saw Joanne was at a Szold’s get together, and she was there with Diana Toucks. Always enjoyed our time together and she was a super lady
