She was my favorite, simply because she always made me feel so special and so loved. That was my Aunt Joanne, she loved everyone and everyone loved her. She has her own special place in my heart and memories of her will live on forever. She fought so very hard and now it’s time for her to rest. I will miss you “Sweetie” and I love you always. ♥️😘🙏

I loved my Aunt Joanne very much. She was always so sweet and kind to everyone. She had a great sense of humor and you always enjoyed being around her, because she made you feel happy. She loved everyone in a very sincere way and you felt her love. We are all going to miss her so much and a huge void will be felt without her presence. I know she is in heaven with all of our loved ones that have passed and she is at peace now. Rest easy Aunt Joanne. I know you and my mother Marguerite are now together again. I can picture that in my mind and smile.
Love you always,
Your neice Cindy ❤️🙏❤️
