Some of you may be asking 'Who is Joan Turner?'

Well, to put it very simply, according to Mr and Mrs Holley she was Buddy's Number One Fan.

She was there from the start and also assisted Bill Griggs when he started his magazines. I was proud to call her my friend.

She sadly died back in 1996 from Cancer at the early age of 49. This was the days of snail mail.

Recently my friend Graham Pugh and his wife Ira travelled to Washington D.C.

On this trip, they stopped by the Ivy Hill Cemetery in Alexandria, Virginia to pay his respects to Joan Turner.

He had learned that Joan was buried in an unmarked grave and had to be shown where it was located. While there, he struck up a conversation with the cemetery manager who showed great interest in Joan.

He told her all he knew about this wonderful lady and Holly Historian and left his phone number.

Several weeks after returning home he received a phone call from the manager who told him they have placed Joan's name on their "Famous Women" list and her final resting place will be a stop on the cemetery tour they sponsor every so often.

There are a number of notables buried in that cemetery, among them being the famous rocket scientist Dr. Werhner Von Braun.
