I will miss “Anut” Joan so very much. She was a huge influence on my life growing up and like a second mother figure to me. There are so many memories that I have played in head mind these last few days...far to many to mention ie Birthdays, holidays, family gatherings, escape route when I was in trouble with my mom growing up. But my favorite was when I would stay the night with Vicky and Dana and Aunt Joan would rent scary movies. We would pile in her bed with popcorn, all of us encluding the dog (Rags). We all would be so scared that we slept there all night. I will cherish these memories always. I love you and will miss you forever....Kimbo
