Farewell to Joan.

 My aunt, Joan Louise Chaney Long (March 5.1934 - March 24, 2015) was a strong, opinionated, difficult, loving presence in my life. She was a second mother, a friend, a political adversary, and a playmate. I never doubted her love.  I will miss her!

She had a library of expressions that she loved to use to shock or surprise. "I'm going to raise hell and put a prop under it," was a common one. "I buy you books and buy you books and all you do is eat the covers" another.
