My Heart Broke when I Heard Joanie Had Passed.....
I loved her so much....even though she was going through the same
things I was, she always tried to make me feel better......
As I write this, I'm looking at her face on my laptop screen,
and she was such a beautiful person, inside and out.
I loved the times we spent with each other, be it eating out with Ellen, or going to
California........ we always had a good time picking on Ellen.......
