Remembering JoAnn Kirby

(09/01/2003)

Dear Editor, I just wanted to take the time to honor the remembrance of my friend JoAnn Kirby. Today would have been her 69th birthday. We were childhood friends and school mates. I am sorry to say that through the years we didn't stay close in touch.

OH! I heard about her and her family when my parents would visit Grantsville. JoAnn was busy raising her family and I was busy with my five. I always thought of her on her birthday as we were just a week apart in age.

Now she is gone from us. She was a great person and a true friend.

We began to communicate and see each other just a couple years before she died. It has been a little over a year now that she went home to be with her Lord. But you know good friends are never forgotten and will always be close to us in our hearts and minds.

I just want to say JoAnn you were the best and I honor your memory.
