So sorry to hear of the passing of Aunt Joan, my prayers go out to all the family. I don’t really have a lot of memories because we lived far apart, she’s reunited with Uncle James Andy the rest of our departed families. Rest in Peace Aunt JoanWith love Sandy Nelson
My sweet Aunt Joan! One of the most precious ladies ever. She was always there for everyone if they needed her. I could have some of the longest conversations with her. She always gave me her undivided attention. She made me feel as though I was the only one there. She loved her family unconditionally. Her door was always open. I am so thankful for the time I got to visit with her last. It is a moment I will keep deer to my heart. I am praying for you all to have strength and know she it at peace. Oh what a celebration she is having in heaven.
Thinking of you at this sad time ,your all in my thoughts xx
To my cousins, I love y'all. I have so many memories with Aunt Joann being right on the middle of them. My heartfelt sympathy is with you all because I've been where you are now and I know what you are going through. My prayers are with you all.
