Maureen, John, Michelle, Johnny, Brandon and Justin,
My deepest condolences on the passing your mother, mother-in-law and grandmother. Joan was a real sweetheart and beautiful person. I know she is now happily dancing her heels off with her beloved husband, Mike. That's the way I will always remember her, sweeping the dance floor with Mike, both smiling away in wedded bliss.
