    I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Joan, what a sweet, and loving person always with a smile. I pray that the family will find peace in knowing that she left a lasting impression on people who knew her. I am truly sadden by this, it caught me off guard to see this notice. But we don’t know the hour or the day, trusting that God will give you comfort today and in the days to come. God Bless you all.

  4. Craig: I am very sorry to hear about the loss of your Mother. My sympathies to you and all of your family. May GOD in his mercy send angels to bring you all comfort during this difficult time. Peace! Sheldon

  5. To the family of Joan, you have my deepest sympathy in your loss. When someone you love dies, it is like losing an irreplaceable rare-precious jewel. God knows how you feel because he had to endure the pain of His son’s agonizing death. Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages sin pays is death, but the gift God gives is everlasting life by Christ Jesus our Lord.” May you rely on God’s promise that Joan will live again!
