    We are very sorry to hear about Joe, we lived in the trailer court with her and then when she moved to Friendship Village, she live across in the next apt. building from my mother (Nina Fisher). Mother and her were very good friends and I am sure mother was up in heaven waiting on her.

    Our hearts go out to Connie, Brenda, and their family at this time. Much love, The Mattox Family
