I was glad I got to meet your Mom almost 40 years ago. She had a wonderful life and you all benefited from her parenting. May the many wonderful memories you share comfort you now and in the future. Our family sends our condolences to all.

My husband and I met Joanna (and Elmer) in Naples. They were both good friends of my sister and brother-in-law, Joanne and Don Loversky. We spent a lot of time with them at the pool or playing poker. Fun times. Joanna was a truly classy lady - beautiful with an amazing smile. Such good memories we have!

Hi Tony - My condolences to you and your family on the passing of your mother. I can see where you and the boys get your mother's prowess in athletics and hopefully genetics in the aging category …
