My sincerest condolences to the Laskowski Family. I have been Mrs. Laskowski's Maid for the past year and to hear of her passing saddens me deeply. It was always a joy to come see and work for her. It never felt like being at work at all as soon as I entered her house where she always greated me with a bright smile. Telling her tales of my toddler and bringing her potato soup made her so happy and vice versa listening to her tales. Heaven gained a very precious and special angel! It breaks my heart not to be seeing her anymore but I am more than certain will meet again. Again, prayers to her family in this difficult time. Sincerely Melanie

Dear Laskowski family, What a remarkable legacy Joan left. We here in the Meadow knew her as a lover of the Tetons but never fully appreciated the incredible contributions of this dedicated lady to the cause of free speech and civil liberties. Thank you Joan for all those tireless decades that we all are benefitting from. If you all haven't already, please submit any stories you recall to Bob Righter and Sherry Smith for our Meadow history. Our deepest sympathy on your loss. Sincerely, Don, Tom, and Laurie Saylak
