Where to begin ... to try and say how special a lady Joan was.  Look no further for a true example of 'being beautiful on the inside and beautiful on the outside'.   I'm so very thankful for our telephone conversation before the 50th reunion, and then for our enjoyable visit at the reunion.  Larry has been blessed with Joan as his wife, and oh how she loved her man!  I now count Joan as one of my classmates I'll be hunting up, as soon as I get to Heaven.  She's in Good Hands ... the very best now, so I will pray for Larry and those who will miss her most of all, during this difficult time.  May the love of God and those of family and friends - sustain you all.    Fondly, Linda

 I didn't know Joan well, but, in my mind's eye, I can still see her walking side-by-side with Larry through the halls of Redford High - carrying their books.  I used to think, "what a cute couple", and to think they knew each other from the 7th grade!  I thought she was beautiful then and still thought she was beautiful 50 years later at the reunion.  For Larry, your family pictures are incredible!  How wonderful you had all of those years together.  May god bless all of you.
