My dear friend Joanne,

You are no longer in pain, your suffering is over. Peace and calm surround you now. God took you home before I was ready, but you had to leave us and we know now you are at peace. I will miss you. I will miss your laugh, your smile, your stories, your comforting words, and your grace.

ESSLINGER - Jo-Anne Marie departed this life on August 9, 2007 at the age of 48.

And don't go out and buy the book, I'll send it too you! It is a good book,all about Hosea & Gomer(she was a prostitute, and God told him to marry her! All about love & forgivness.

It is a great loss at any age, but to lose a friend who is only 48 is truly painful. I know you were blessed by her friendship and will treasure her memory.

Hi Renae,
I wish I could give you a big hug and make you feel better. It is always hard when we lose people we love for ther is never a time that we are ready to lose them. But we are part of a bigger picture and have to trust the artist i guess.
love you chicky
