It is with a very sad heart that I announce the passing of our dearest friend and mother -- the Grand Dame of the Little Big Horn Associates -- Joan Croy. Joan passed away today after suffering a heart attack shortly after leaving the hospital. She had just driven home and was stricken as she was leaving her car. This wonderful lady was like a mother to many of us in the LBHA. Her passing leaves a hole in our hearts that will not be filled anytime soon. It was Joan who requested that I moderate the Little Big Horn Associates Message board when it was first created in 2007 and it has been my honor to do so. I will post up funeral arrangements as soon as I can.
