Joan, I miss you. I went to dinner with the girls and actual looked for your car. I can't believe you are gone. I'll always cherish the time I spent with you. Our talks, our outings, your friendship and your wisdom will all be missed. Your friendship made my life better and I will never forget you. My thoughts and prayers remain with Charlie and the family.

Nurturing. Meticulous. Creative. Organized. Caring. A wonderful cook. These are words I can use to describe Joan to name a few. These are also words that described a woman who helped change my life.

When I first came to the United States from the Philippines 8 years ago, I was at a loss... I felt as if every idea of home I once knew was obliterated. My parents were thousands of miles away, and I have left all my memories behind with nothing with me but a suitcase and my books to keep me company in a very unfamiliar place.

This was also the year when, becasue of the goodness of their hearts, my brother Charlie and Joan, welcomed me into their home. During these years, I spent a lot of time with Joan, knowing more about the astonishing individual that she is. Looking back in retrospect, during this time she became a lot of things to me... She carried out a multitude of roles. I came to see her as a mother, a sister, a mentor, and a friend.

I also learned the true meaning of uncdonditional love and devotion through Joan. Through the years I saw how she has continuously showered my brother Charlie with affection. Laughing as much as they did and making each day a memorable an experience as possible. As challenging this last year have been to them, they have lovingly held on and remained strong.

I would always remember the day we pianted the guest room in her house, as well as the day we placed the ornaments on her Christmas tree, and the day she taught me how to cook her pork chops and rice... These moments will always remain special because as she had once told me, "You'll never ever forget lifelong friends".

There are numerous memories I can recount over and over, but will never do justice to all the kindness she has showered me, and everyone else around her.

I will always be grateful for all the things she has done for me, my family, and for Charlie, from the simplest to the most generous. I wil never forget you. I love you Joan... We all love you.

Joan was one of a kind - I know her from the place she worked for many years. I don't remember a day when she didn't have that smile in her face. I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to know her. Last few months, I asked her colleagues - how she was doing. I walk in there (her work place) - and I miss her... I almost feel her smile. In my entire life, I have never met another wonderful lady like Joan - apart from my mom. Joan, I will miss you - and I know you still have that smile on your face. I also want the Abarcar family know that I like many others who had been fortunate to know Joan - we all share your loss. She is still the best. She will be missed a lot. With best regards, Tushar Hazra
