To the family,

We send our love and condolences. She was one heck of a woman: kind but strong, loving but tough. I will always admire her for her ability to be both. She treated me like family, and I'll never forget her welcoming presence and sense of humor. Prayers for your endurance and comfort during this time.

Joan was one of the most sincere, loving person that I ever met. The very first time I met her she treated me like she had known me all of her life. She loved my dad and her kids and grandkids with all that she had. She will be missed by all that knew and loved her.
