I visited Joan for several years as a friendly visitor for Burcham Hills. I looked forward to seeing her every week. We had lovely conversations and talked about her family and her memories of growing up in Detroit. She came to hold a special place in my heart and I missed her when I was no longer able to volunteer because of the pandemic. I knew she was very loved and that she loved so much in return. I learned a lot from her about acceptance and caring, and will always remember our friendship.
