Joel, was so surprised with Luanne passing so suddenly. I am deeply sorry for your loss. I worked with/for Luanne for almost 10 years driving bus and she was the only person from Reedley employees I thought enough of to visit with before I moved to Oregon a couple months ago. She was a wonderful lady, a great person to work for. We will all miss her.

Luanne was an amazing part of the special TCOVE family. It was great to see her at the reunions Bill and Carol hosted over the years. We would often wave to her when she had the route on 180. We were saddened to pick up the paper that day and see that she had died. As someone once told me when I lost a parent in the spring, she will " be able to celebrate Easter in heaven".
