For peace - walk in nature          For truth - ask a child           For serenity - be yourself

I built Joann's Outdoor Classroom so that the foundation of her memory is her work of healing and education through nature.  I truly believe as an angel she watches over everyone that visits that area of Bowie Nature Park.  Without this belief, her death would seem meaningless and cold.

My heartfelt gratitude and eternal "thank you" goes out to Senior Army Instructor Major Jay Massey and Army Instructor Command Sergeant Major Daniel Moore who brought Franklin High School JROTC students to give the classroom a face lift.  Jay Massey is a wonderful young man that went to school with Joann at Franklin Hgh.  They cleaned the classroom, the benches and tables, the reading/meditation area, the bird feeders, the pathways, the Memorial Bricks and the bridge.  Lunch was provided after their hard work. Thank you to a great group of young adults who have chosen the path of service for their journey, both at home and abroad.
