Oh please! Give it a rest! Just because you may not believe in this stuff does not mean it isnt true. It only means you have a closed mind!

It would be great if next time you stop and let her know about this forum and the continued interest --- and ask her to post some info for those of us who still care about her.

well, this has certainly been interesting reading! Have not heard talk of JoAnne in a long time. Never knew her but I reminded a resident at J.Iverson Riddle formerly WCC of her so much I acquired the name "JoAnne" by this special resident/ and person to me. Obviously, by the thrills this person got as I entered the room, her believing i was "JoAnne", Ms.Denton moved mountains to acquire this friendship with our friend left behind at WCC

"witch" or not, who cares? she's one of the friendliest people i've met in this town. why does it matter what she believes? she's awesome, and i doubt she cares what anyone thinks about her.

Where could I meet her? She sounds cool. Unlike nearly all of the local confederate wannabe white trash around here.
She's gotta be an improvement.

What a concept...

To Quote you **"I cant believe that people think that a witch is good,lol........ "**
You are Obviously unwilling to accept anyone Else's religion. What would you do if a Atheist or Buddhist saved you or your mother from a fire? Would you preach to him or say thank you and Love him? See , from your post your coming across as a narrow minded and Unwilling to accept anyone of any other faith. Maybe you need to get out more to be around other people. Acceptance/Love/Understanding is the most Important thing in the whole world. You dont seem to have much of any of that. I wouldn't want you around my children or my family.
just because people want to preach this love acceptance and coexist bull crap doesn't mean everyone buys into it and does it.
there is still something called freedom of speech and freedom of religion too for that matter. if you want to accept anything and everything as ok, thats your business, but don't go jumping down the throat of someone who has guts enough to state and stand for what they believe.

I doubt very seriously that anyone would want to be around your children or your family either one anyway. If you love and accept anything and everything, your kids are probably hellions that disrespect everyone coming and going (including you). As for your whole family the kids learn from the masters.

Any of you all familiar with the naked movie riding a horse around that she made? I am amazed to hear She taught me Sunday School. I did not think witches went to church. FYI...They used to rent the movie for viewing at that old video store (torn down now) in Glen Alpine in the early 90's.

FYI... the name Gray Shadows was changed to NC Supreme Angelic Spiritualist Church in 1982. According to the NCSOS the name Gray Shadows was good from 1977-1982 and the new name from 1982-present.

Still remember the Frankie silvers séance? I do, was there with lots of friends, family and complete strangers. That was 20 years ago but the memories still remain. Plus she is my aunt. Good witch but great woman. Not a bad bone in her.....
