This Website is dedicated to the one who meant the world to me, yet has gone on to be with Him.
That person is my sister, Joann, without whom I would have struggled through life.
She took me in when I needed shelter and guided me to a better path in life.
She helped me as I helped her.
We were the very best of friends as a result.
Often, I think back to those times and know that without her I would have been lost.
I owe her my own life as a result.
I will always cherish her close to my heart and keep her in my mind.
