Joanie was a very special lady who married a very special man and as a result was embraced by the Holmes children. She will be missed by all who had the good fortune of knowing her. We’re blessed to be a part of that fortunate group. Love to Dad, Ted and Paula and all of the Holmes family. Laura and Lloyd
