Joanie had so much love to share with everyone . The entire Adair Family was known for that and I am so grateful to be part of their extended family. I hold on to so many happy childhood memories that were spent with Joanie and the Adair Family. May God hold her in his loving arms and give her peace.
My deepest sympathy,
Nancy Mines Faulkner
