Joanne and Edgar were such a thoughtful twosome. They would come to help with the set up of so many parties. She worked so quickly, I had to ask her where she got all her energy.
She said, “I eat a lot of pistachios.”. Edgar grinned and smiled. He was always smiling at her.
A wonderful Westbrook couple!
