I have been trying to locate Joan for several years but to no avail. I was certainly surprised to see this obituary on my computer today but I know now where you are, Joan, and I'm sure you are happy to be not only with Jesus whom you were so very close to for so many years but also your daughter and son who you have missed for a long time. I have missed you also for a long time but we did have some special times together. I will love you and miss you always. We were not only friends but distant cousins.
