    Cousin to Cousin, may memories of Our Dearest Joan and the love of family surround us and give us strength in days ahead. There is no gift of greater value than that of a cousins love. I ask that we hold on, if we as a family can put our trust in God, we can and will get through any thing. We will miss Joan, always, forever.

    Your presence will be missed Cousin Joan. It was good seeing you a couple of months ago. You shared a story of my mom with me and we laughed out loud. Your warm spirit filled the room that day. I know you are walking around heaven hugging all of the loved ones who left before you.
