This picture looks just like Mrs. Boss, and brings back fond memories of her love and care and humor! Sorry that I could not make it to the service, but know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Your parents were very special people in my life and I like to think that on my good days, I am able to reflect some of their finer qualities they always modeled and worked hard to instill in me. Gary L. Brom, Jr., November 21, 2011 I was so sad to know of Joan's passing. I worked closely with her at the American Red Cross in Jasper and loved every minute of it. May the family be wrapped in the love of God at this time. carol d vanderkamp, November 19, 2011
