This is JoAnn's elder daughter, writing with some sad news. Your dear friend took ill in late September, and passed away just before Thanksgiving. We are celebrating her long life of creativity and kindness, and keeping our father company on this new phase of his journey. Thank you all so much for reading and responding over the years; your friendship meant so much to her, and she always felt the connections near and far. Please share anything you like here, and think of her when you see an interesting bird or barn!
Remember that while we here on this side are waving goodbye and sighing, "There she goes..." think of all the people who are excitedly standing on the other shore, shouting, "Here she comes!"
