May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
May the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
Rest in peace dear Joann.

Melissa, Kassia, Dan and your families
Sorry for your loss! I have an emptiness in my heart with her departure, even though I know she has gone to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus! I am so thankful nothing can separate a believer from Him! I also want to let you know I enjoyed knowing your mom and I'll be keeping each of you in prayer during this period. Sincerely

Joann will be missed by many. Her heart, compassion and unselfishness were examples for everyone. She was always willing to lend a hand. She did work for animals and with her church. She truly was an angel on earth. Rest in God's grace and eternal peace Jo. Our prayers and sympathy to her family.
