Joanna was a very special person to me. I was glad you mentioned her work with the the GED program. She was my rock. We made an unbeatable team. There are many people who went through our program and got all the help they needed from her to go on to successful jobs. She had a smile for everyone. A kind word was always at the ready. I will miss her as I know all of you will. My condolences.
