Sorry to learn of Joan's passing, through a Lourdes' neighbor this week. We missed the publication in the Halifax newspaper. What a lovely picture posted here! Her faithful card at Xmas, and family news, were always eagerly anticipated in the Mahoney household. Our deepest sympathies are extended to you.
