Friends of Jody Luncheon 2015

November 15, 2015

A few of Jody's closest friends recently created a group in her honor.   Jody has so many friends from numerous parts of her life and we were all better for knowing her.  The idea is that many of us would not have met or known each other if it wasn't for her.  The Friends of Jody group hopes to continue to meet every few months also while helping one of Jody's favorite charieties, The Children's Inn at NIH.
