You were a lovely little girl and your Mom always proud to show you off. Your Mom loved you and you got to do a lot of exciting things in your short life. To Joann, you must learn to live differently now, without Joetta...but in her honor and for her memory to continue on, you will be strong enough to do it. I wish you strength for your journey and peace in your memories of such a beautiful daughter.
