I just received the Sun. News here in
Frisco, TX and was saddened to read of
Joanne’s passing. I remember fondly the
days at Bethany when Jim was alive and
the two of you were always going on those wonderful vacations on your boat. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

Blessings to you,
Marcette Vaughan
