It has been my privlege and honor to have known Joan, though I only knew her for a short time I will miss her and her smiles. My heart goes out to her family during this time of loss.
We have been friends with Gene since he was involved at k of c in cathage.We maintained a relationship over the yrs with our daughters, and when the occasons arrived. We are so at peace that they are together and will pray for their eternal rest.
She fought a tough battle. She was an amazing woman. I pray that God surrounds your whole family at this time but know that she is no longer held by the limitations of her earthly body. She is with God and your dad (a.k.a. grandpa). I know she was so very proud of her whole family. Much love, Charlie, Kim, Holly and Kevin
