    So sorry for the loss of your beloved Joan. I have fond memories of Joan. She was the matriarch of the family. I understand the sadness of this moment because, I have lost my parents as well. But I also believe that Joan is no longer suffering and she is in heaven with GOD her Heavenly Father and Art, her earthly father and all the loved ones that made the journey before her. We are praying for the family during this time and we will continue to pray for God’s richest blessings going forward.
