Not sure what to say?

Dear Rick & Sean,
I so loved working with Joanne her last years in Chelsea. We spent so much time discussing our families and she taught me so much about patience. She was a lovely compassionate lady who gave her all for the kids.

Sean, all through the time we were together at school your mom's devotion and love for you was profound, as was yours for her. I am so sorry for your loss... all my love as you grieve your mom's passing.

To the family of Joanne F. Masters my deepest sympathies for your loss. May the fond memories of your loved one bring comfort while you receive the strength to endure as only God can provide. Please take comfort in His promise to end tears, pain, suffering and death forever.

Sean: I know what a rock of support you were to your mother over these years, and how great the esteem has been in which she held you. I'm sure you know that you can count on support from many at Greenhills and in general at this sad time. -- Dick Tobin

Dear Rick and Sean, I was so sorry to read of Joanne's death. When I would see you at St. Clare's, Joanne's smile was a day brightener. I am so glad we ran into each other a while back. Still the same smile and lovely spirit. My prayers are with you.

Joanne was such a positive spirit. I came to know her only recently as part of the Cancer Support Community support group. I always looked forward to seeing her smiling face and hearing her gentle voice. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends during this sad time.

Joanne was an amazing blend of quiet joy and boundless caring. I had the great privilege of teaching with her for many years. Joanne supported the students and staff in Chelsea Schools with both her words and actions while still maintaining her first priority, loving and caring for her family. I'll miss her annual birthday call and her beautiful smile. I'm so glad she was part of my world.

I had the privilege of working with Joanne, she loved her students and her job. She was also a good friend. I'll miss you so very much Joanne.

My Dear Sean. Words can't express the sadness I am feeling with the loss of your mother and Rick, your wife. I was blessed with the opportunity of getting to know your mom while being your coach and continuing that friendship even after. I enjoyed her smile and her energy. My thoughts are with you and your dad during this of grieving. My love to you.
