I believe the last time we were all together was at JoAnn's funeral in September of 1992.
When JoAnn passed away too early at the age of 43, I was devastated. I was with her the day before she died, and saw firsthand how cancer had ravaged this once vital, funny and truly sweet woman. She was, in so many ways, the glue that held us together so tightly. Although it was breast cancer spreading throughout her body that killed her, it was denial that took her life. She had a "thing" about doctors, and her refusal to see one when she first found the lump ultimately led to her senseless passing. She fought the good fight from her first diagnosis in about 1989 to the end, and Evy and I saw her often. During those few years when JoAnn got better and then much worse, we continued to spend time together, now just three of us without Linda. And because she was so deeply hurt by their argument, JoAnn and Linda never reconciled, at JoAnn's insistence. Beyond 1992, Evy and I spoke every now and then over the next several years, but we lost touch after I moved to Florida. I have recently tried to find her again, but she did have the wanderlust, and so far I've been unsuccessful. It breaks my heart.
I didn't have access to my photographs when I started this blog, they were still packed away from the last move Bob and I made. I wrote here that as soon as I could dig them out I would post them. After a just a little bit of searching, I successfully found the majority of my collection, so I’ve gone back and added a few pics throughout for a little “spice”. Hope you enjoyed them.
That’s all for now....Thanks for reading, see ya next time!
