    my aunt joanne was one if not the favorite aunt of all time. I remember so many trips to Rochester to see all of them and soo many visits from them. 4 adults, 8 kids in a 2 bedroom house. you always went to bed with a pillow and bed but you never knew where and with what you would wake up to. The trips to Florida were met with so much fun. Amanda calling her uncle joanne and always climbing up on her lap while she ate and said…Well share….Aunt joanne would look at me and id shrug my shoulders and Amanda would eat her food. I miss her smile her laugh her everything.
