Judy, this is your Uncle Bob’s daughter. so sorry to hear about Aunt Joan passing away. I got to see her and Uncle George when I visited Indiana with Kenny, Aunt Roszella son, three years ago. He’s unable to use his hands very well to write, so I am also sending condolences from him. I loved Aunt Joan and she could tell some amusing stories, as well as share old recipes. My love to Uncle George
You cousin Cheryl.
