My dearest Aunt Joan, your smile, your laugh and the way you hug will be in my heart forever.

Joan was a special friend to so many of us. She was so good to keep in touch with me when I moved to Florida. My life was better for having known her.

I remember our many talks about family and life. We always had a good laugh, especially the last time we played canasta. That really annoyed our opponents, which made us laugh more. You will be missed, dear Joan.
