and he asked about all of JoAnnie's old friends from the board and how you all were doing.
I think today was the first day we were able to talk about her and laugh together without one of us holding back a tear. It was terrific to see him in good spirits.
He's even going to "the boat" to gamble this weekend, which is something you old-timers know JoAnn loved to do. I don't know that he's gone since she passed away.
Anyway, it was good to see him in such good spirits. Their son, Mike, (Lori, JoAnnie had such hopes for him and you!) has graduated from college, moved back home, and is working at a large financial institution here, doing very well.
The only blemish is that JoAnnie's little dog, Mia, has lupus, so she has been undergoing chemo. She seems to be responding well, though. Benito didn't have the heart to put her down, which is what the vet had recommended.
Just wanted to share for those of you who knew her well. The rest of you...boy, did you ever miss out!
Love and hugs...
