  1. To Joan’s family. I am sorry about your loss; in fact, she is a loss for all of us. I remember visiting she and Dick on many occasions. There was usually a little something offered to me that she had made. She always had a smile and made me feel welcome. I will remember her fondly. May she now Rest In Peace.
