JoannaHi Cindy Your spirit still lives in our childhood adventures. That frog pond behind our houses: our hikes a to Springbank Park, complete with our paper bags of sandwiches and jars of Koolaid: our twilight games of hide and seek; our contraband snacks sneaked out of kitchen cupboards without our mothers really knowing. I know Bobby and Col are missing you as much as I am. Love you Jo
