I was wandering around in the hotel in Ft. Lauderdale at the barbie convention and I ran into Joanne.. She was on her way to the lobby to start the ITP get together. So I followed her to the lobby.. There were several people there most I didn't know but for the board. It was nice to put a face with the name.
I have to say that the gathering was the absolute highlight of the whole convention for me..
I can't speak for anyone else but that get together was like Christmas and my birthday rolled into one..
It was so much fun and meeting everyone was awesome.. the games, the raffles, everything was so exceptional..
I felt like I was wrapped in a warm fuzzy blanket and it ended too soon..
Joanne was the most gracious, sweet, kindest person I have ever met in my life and I was extremely privileged to have had her in my life.. and that time was way to short.. she was our angel here on the board and been our angel above for awhile.. I miss her everyday and am sitting here crying as I write this..
I miss her so much :-( .. blessings to Ron for continuing this board.
