Our family is deeply saddened by Joan's untimely passing. The connection between the Rouse family, through our Dear Odessa, and ours, goes back a long way. Joan has no doubt lived a full and productive life which is testament by family and friends who spoke so eloquently of her since her passing.
Peter, Doreen, Dennis, Shandell, Yolande, Marsene, Wendy, Jess and Family - although it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow, may looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow.
Our sincere love and sympathy during this difficult time. May God Bless You All.

The death of my cousin Joan was not what I wanted to hear, especially when I was thousands of mile away.
My heart sank deep in despair knowing that god had taken another angel away.

Dear Peter, Shandell, Yolande, Marsene and extended Family:

My deepest condolences for the loss of your wife, father, sister and cousin who was dedicated to family, friends, church, and the community.

Death of a loved one leaves an empty place in our hearts that only loving memories can fill.
May your hearts be filled with those memories as you celebrate a life well lived.

As she rest in peaceful sleep, her contagious smile and kindness will never be forgotten because, she has left behind an unforgetable legacy.

My family and I will keep you in our prayers.

God's blessing to you all.
