I am deeply saddened at the passing of my Aunt Joan. My one regret is that I didnt spend more time with her but am thankful for the time spent with her. I was so happy when I saw her in the water aerobics class last year at theY. She was doing pretty good then. I will miss you so much and love you.

I'm so sorry about the passing of Joan. It was a long time ago, but I worked with Joan for a while. She absolutely adored her husband and son, and spoke of them often. She was always a happy, joyful person with a zest for life and a great optimism about the future. It was a pleasure to work with her and I've thought about her here and there over the years. She had a quick wit and was very intelligent. Looking at her photo above, she was still a pretty lady with a willing smile and playful nature. She looks like the same Joan I remember from long ago, albeit a bit older just like the rest of us. My sympathies to her son, Tony, and the rest of the family. Just thought you should know that your Mom/Grandmom/Stepmom was well-regarded, well-liked, and a wonderful person. I smile when I think of her.
