Condolence & Memory Journal

I have many wonderful memories of Joan. She loved her life with you and was such a brave fighter over this past year. She told me that you were her rock and never failed to mention that we chose well. She will be missed.

Joan was such a great person. She was so committed to the kids she worked with, and fun to talk to while we worked in the yard. She knew what was important, and did not fuss with the rest. I felt we were like minded New England girls, and I miss her.

Uncle Sam, the thing I'll remember about Aunt Joan most is her fierce love. She wanted the best for her loved ones. Also her sense of humor, craftiness, love for the beach, and her hospitality when we'd visit.
