Barbara and Norma,
I tried to make it to Joan’s service, but did not. I worked with Joan at United Virginia Bank when she worked with Kay Randall, our Chairman. We ate lunch together, played golf together and had many good times. Unfortunately, we lost contact over the years. I could not believe it when I saw her obituary in the paper. She always talked about the two of you and her nieces and nephews; you were so much a part of her life.
I would love to hear from one or both of you. I know how difficult a time this is for you; I lost my only sister, Carol, 12 years ago and I still think of her every single day.
May God Bless both of you and your Families.
