Linda and I, along with Jeff and Angela, were deeply saddened when we learned of Joan’s death on Tuesday. We have many fond memories of our children growing up on Velma Drive, a wonderful community, where Joan, Bill, Janet, and Tres were an integral part of this special place for us. We pray that God will provide comfort and peace to this wonderful family and to all Joan’s friends who will certainly miss her kindness and gentleness.

Bill and family, you know how much I love you and your family as we were neighbors as your children grew up. Being in church with you and Joan at Taylor’s First was an honor. Your lovely Joan will surely be missed by many. We are praying for you and your family.

Joan was a very loving and caring Christian lady always sharing her bright smile with those around her. Peggy, Nick, Tyler and I were fortunate to have been neighbors and fellow church members with the Bagwell family. Our prayer is that God's love will surround Bill, Janet, Tres and all of the Bagwell family during the coming days.

With Love,
Don & Peggy Brown

Mrs. Joan had the most gentle spirit about her . We always enjoyed visiting with her at Crayton’s ball games. Mason also enjoyed staying with her when Crayton and he went to Furman ball camp. We are praying for each of you and know that when she entered into heaven we are confident the Lord greeted her with well done good and faithful servant.

Tres and Casey
We just want you to know how sad we are that you are going through this time. We know how much you loved her and from experience we know how much she'll be missed. What a comfort to know the separation is for a short while only. She's resting in the arms of our Savior now. You rest in his comfort as well.
