  • It was such a joy to get to know your mom and grandmother while we watched too many baseball games to count. I don’t think I will ever watch another game without thinking of her.

    Sending you love and prayers.

Joan was the epitome of a real lady. gentle and soft spoken. We shared many laughs on our trip, which I still remember. May Joan now rest in the peace that is eternal.
