I was so sad to hear of Joan's passing. We had just talked on the phone a couple weeks ago, and had promised to get together  soon. And now she is gone...I will miss her so much. We loved being with her and Bob, and playing games and visiting. I am sorry that I will not be able to attend her memorial, as I  can't leave my husband alone. Please know that she was a very special lady to us, and that she will be missed so much.

so sorry to hear about Joan's passing.  We met her at Hoosier corners square dance club.  She was the nicest lady and so much fun to be with.  we were with her in Florida when she got word of her brothers death, so she and I had a good cry.  I know she will be missed by so many but she and Bob are together again.  

                                           With a heavy heart,
