Sad to see another neighbor pass. Everyone liked Ione and she was always so kind to my younger sister, Linda, who was a good childhood friend of Joan's. Condolences to Dan and Joan.

Even though we were not related, Kundes were neighbors and Ione was like my second mother. My condolences to Dan and Joan and the extended family. Susanne Whirley
