Joan had a laugh that could only make you do the same.  She had a heart of gold and a love that stretched for miles.  She wore a meaningful smile filled with a purpose.  Our hearts hurt that she is no longer here but we can’t help but rejoice in knowing she is in Heaven, with her beloved son.  With our time left on earth we will praise the Lord and thank Him for the time we spent with her.  She was a beautiful mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend.  She will be greatly missed, but even more so remembered.
