Stephanie,

We were so sorry to hear of your Mother's passing this week. Looking through all 136 photos in the photo gallery, it sure looks as though your mother was a loving and caring person. Everyone of her personal pictures have the same inscription, "Love, Joan". Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.
