Dave- I was just thinking about Joanne the other day and thinking I should look her up on FB and then I opened Wednesday's paper today and read the news. My heart is overflowing with emotion now for you and Travis, and with the memories that I have of her and the laughter she used to bring to our little group with Donna and myself in the Pacific Centre London Drugs pharmacy. She was amazing and an awesome friend...hugs and prayers

I am very very sad my right hand gal is gone. You made so many of my days better with your laughter and positive attitude. Always hoped you and Dave would follow me north and we could keep pumpin the scripts out. Thought of you many times in the last year when I heard of your news. You will always be in my heart and thoughts. Angela and I are thinking of you Dave and Travis, keep Joanne's spirit alive.

We talked for many years on the phone before we ever met. I will always remember our dim sum lunches and especially the last one when you were so excited for Christmas and family. Will certainly miss you.

Joanne, I am so glad for the little time we spent together recently with Elaine and Yvonne .You were upbeat,chatty,considerate like your normal self. And that is what I'll cherish and remember forever. You brought joy to Shoppers' Drug Mart. And you brought joy to all of us privileged enough to work with you. Goodbye, my friend!

David, Travis, Yvonne, Terry & families - It's the little things, the small everyday occurences that you will remember. The laughs, the stories, the smiles and yes even the tears of times you shared with Joanne as your wife, your mother and your sister. Even though today you will feel like you will never recover from the loss of Joanne it is the memories of her that will carry you through and eventually the sun will shine in your lives again. Thinking of you - The Johnson, Stewart, Nelson and Myram families
