Tribute to the Graduate!

Joan Marie Panganiban. (aka Joanie Bonie)
The baby of the family is graduating from Snow Canyon High School.
Favorite memories of Joanie:
1) She would always wake up early with my mom and play before the rest of the house woke up for the day. She was always a pleasant little thing, unless Jamie (older brother) was bugging her! haa.
2) One day we played pioneer in the pouring rain and I have an image of her in a red flyer wagon covered with a blanket, soaked to the bone. She was the only one that fit in the wagon and so she was the precious cargo! =)
3) Conversations on the phone about everything.

4) Singing at the piano with her as my mom plays the piano.
5) Taking her senior portraits.

My sister Joanie is beautiful inside and out. She is kind to everyone and doesn't seem to know she is gorgeous. She is a very peaceful, spiritual person with a strong testimony. She is a great example to me.
She is going to Brigham Young University-Idaho in the fall. I am so excited for her to meet lots of new people and be on her own! I hope she has a lot of fun at college. (I sure did.)
Joanie is extremely talented. She has a gorgeous singing voice, plays the piano, is a strong leader, and has a great loud contagious laugh. She is a great friend and sister. She can't keep the boys away and I understand why!
Congratulations sissy rocca! Knock 'em dead!
We love you!
