Dear Valerie & Family,
Was surprised & saddened to hear the news of the passing of your Mother. I have known you all for 43 years and Joan was always just the nicest person. I spoke with her on the phone within the past year and she was just as feisty as ever. Take comfort in knowing she lived a good, full life, loved her family dearly and was loved in return and is now in the arms of the Lord. After 27 years, she is "Reunited" with her beloved Tony, who has been waiting patiently. Joan was loved by many and will be missed by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing her. Please accept my heartfelt condolences.

So sorry to hear about mom. What a great woman (and a great cook). I’ll never forget the great comment she would make about your dad’s boss! We used to laugh all night!
I hope you and your family are well.
