My late husband, Perry, and I met Joan and Darryl Blink in 1975. We started going out to eat after Sunday night church with lots of people, but soon the four of us felt a bond of friendship and started our years of at least one meal out together weekly and maybe more. We had so many happy memories together traveling to Morris Bryant for a lobster buffet that left us groaning from overeating. We'd laugh as we had to get a hotel because we were too full to drive home from Lafayette. We had trips to the House on the Rock, Galena, Ford Museum, Nashville, In and many more. All the trips included the joy of friends being together. I'll never forget Joan's laugh and smile. She was fun to be around and always, always kind.
