Vickie, Ricky and Family, I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Joann. I remember coming to her apartment after church when I was a little girl with Yvonne and we would have a real good time with her. She was alot of fun and we all loved her. She talked me into letting her pierce my ears when I was eight years old and she had to stick one of them 3 times.This was one of several memories I have with her. I pray for God to lift you up and give you strength in the days ahead. Love in Christ, Pam Vaughn

Some of my most precious memories from my younger days include Joann. I never got to old to sit on her lap. She was a very special person with a heart of gold. I loved her dearly. A few months ago, God placed her on my heart and mind and I had every intention on visiting her. I regret I let life or maybe Satan get in the way and I never got around to paying her that visit. I wish I had taken the time to let her know how much cared. I have asked the angles to carry that message for me from my heart to hers.
