My heart is with you at this time. I have known her since 1963 when we moved into the neighbourhood. We were in Mexico on vacation and I was not aware that she had passed away. Yesterday I got concerned when I saw all the cars parked in the neighbourhood, I thought something has gone wrong and today I looked up the notice in The Star. Had I been home I would have attended the Funeral. Meanwhile our thoughts and prayers are with you. Bob Townsend and Family.

A lovely lady that time and distance kept us from knowing each other better. Our shared grandchildren are now down to only one grandparent. Sincere sympathy to Joni and family. Love to all, Maureen Landine

I have such fond memories of Joan and the McDonald clan from our adventures in Italy. Thinking about Glenn, Ken, John and Joni during this difficult time. Love, Brian Mitchell
