  1. Although my heart is heavy that your physical presence is no longer with us, I know the heavens are rejoicing to have gained a beautiful soul. May you rest in peace my sweet Mother Crone.

  2. My heart aches every day knowing you aren't here…I'm at a lost for words. I wake up and the nightmare continues. I KNOW that you are at rest and that gives me peace but I'm human and I'm sad. God I trust you to give peace of mind, heart and soul. I love you Crone family and I'm praying for all of us.

  3. I won't say goodbye because I will see her later! I miss her soooo much already. But if we could see her now we'd never want her to leave that glorious place. I can't imagine how the Crone family feels but I'm HERE and praying for you now and always. I'm here whenever you need me. Love Mother Dennis

  4. To my brothers Terry,Kevin ,Antony,Eric, and Stephen. Though we may have lost our pillar our foundation is not destroyed!! Psalms 133 declares Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity. We will draw strength through God and our unity. Mom left us everything we need to succeed. Love you guys. Be blessed!

  5. To the Family: "es; Blessed are they that who mourn, for they shall be comforted."es; Matthew 5:4. I have only know Mother for a little over 2 yrs yet she taught me to Love Christ even as she has loved the church and be true to God. Her presence may be gone but she is only waiting for you on the other side, I know we will see her again. Keep the Faith as she has taught us. Weeping may endure for a moment but joy is yet all around you. Be strong trust in God's love He know why He called her home. I love you my brothers and sisters in Christ.

  6. Words cannot describe the void that now resides in my heart. I know that there is no more pain and that you are now singing in the Heavenly choir. You will always be cherished. I would love to have one more cup of coffee with you and hold your soft hand one more time. You will always be my Naomi, and I your Ruth. Rest in Heaven beloved. To my family and the Dennis Family, thank you for being there!! We will get through this together.

  7. I am thinking about and praying for each of you in that God will wraps his arms around you and comfort you in your time of grief. My heart goes out to all of you and May you find peace knowing that you now have an angel to watch over you.

  14. My deepest condolences to the family of Joann Crone,

    I enjoyed our many talks while meetings of chance at the mailbox in the past while she was living at Northland Senior Village. It was always a joyful moment of the day when she could come out and talk with a neighbor and sit while waiting for the mail to be delivered or when she would be waiting for one of her precious sons arrival to drive her on an errand. She always would try to be at the door early as to not to make anyone have to wait for her.
    I will miss her as we have missed her the past few months while she has been away.
    My deepest condolence and prays for you all

  15. Our sincere sympathy and prayers be with your families at this time.
    Do not have sorrow,
    Do not have pitty,
    For Joann is in a better place,
    And she is at peace.
    Joann is to be remebered by her love and joyfulness while walking among us all.
    I never saw her without a smile, when we would greet each other in the lobby of the Northland Senior Village. She just had the way to cheer you up, no matter how your day had been going.

    In my thoughts and prayers

    Your neighbor,
