My heart stopped for a moment today Mom. Until I realized that you are still and always will be with us all. You were the mother I needed at a time in my life when I had none. With a strong will, you made me see who you saw. With friendship, hugs, kisses, praise, scoldings (if needed), teachings, reassurance, a hand and most of all unconditional love you helped me grow and know I was someone who was wanted and needed. You were always there for the girls and taught them so many things they will never forget (like swiping a cookie before dinner, putting snow down my shirt or just plain belly laughing). I miss you and all ways will. Until we meet again Granny Rest In Peace. As Always Hug's and Love's, Nancy/Litz. ❤️❤️ P.S. PAPA'S in my prayers too.

Dear Aunt Joanie,

You are a beautiful person, one of a kind, one in a million. 💖

You have the biggest heart and you shared it with so many of us. Giving , helpful, loving, caring, kind, and fun-loving (often hilarious) defines you. You have spread your love like sunshine and brightened so many lives.

The memories of Uncle Chuck and you, I will forever cherish, for they are priceless. Having you both in our family life is the greatest gift of all. 💗 I am beyond grateful. Thank you for being such a fun soul😄 as a friend and as an Aunt.💞

Precious applies to someone who is admired, appreciated, and awesome and cannot be replaced....and that someone can never be forgotten😢

Rest easy, Dear Aunt Joanie. God has you in His Arms. I have you in my heart. 💔

Joan was a wonderful woman & a shining light. She will be in our thoughts & missed very much. Being a friend of one of her children ment you were part of the family. She watched over us as we grew up & then welcomed our children into her family as well. We thank Joan & Chuck for all the fun at family camp & sharing those great times with us. Our Love and Prayers go out to the Hunter family.

Growing up in White Lake was wonderful because of your folks living there, they took wonderful care of all of us like we were their own kids.... We had so much fun playing kick ball, and snipe hunting lol not to mention the hot cocoa and cookies..... Your Mom was so loving and caring to all of us neighborhood kids... What wonderful time we had.... She will be missed.... but never forgotten... Love you all.....
