In Memoriam



Last week, Joanne lost her long battle with ovarian cancer. She and I graduated from the same school of nursing, and we worked together for a number of years at the local health department. I admired her so much -- her skill as a nurse and her determination always to do the right thing, no matter the risk to herself. She was so strong, yet gentle, kind, funny, dedicated to her family and friends. In this life, she truly walked the walk, and the world is a better place because she was in it.

It was an honor to have known her.
