This is Joanna’s middle son, Jon.
Joanna died on Aug 21, 2020.
Before she died she asked me to post a message here for you. (Several times over the last year I’ve heard her say with a firm chuckle “I don’t hold with this ‘passing away’ business – I’m going to die, and then I will be dead.”)
Her blog was a common topic of conversation with us and I very much enjoyed receiving its weekly updates. Pictures of me and my kids have been in it, I know she enjoyed running it (and of course the writing!), and I hope you have enjoyed the journey you’ve undertaken with her and her poems, stories, and everything in between.
Take care, be at peace, love each other.
