Bogart, Joanne Wamsher's Guestbook

I've known Joanne for several years, and ate breakfast sitting next to her at JKV on most Saturday mornings. She was a truly lovely lady who always had a smile, always had a laugh, and was always a pleasure to talk to. She will be missed, but Joanne made the world a better place.

In my book of memories, there are so many precious & funny ones of Joanne & her Wamsher family. I am grateful to count her as a friend.
