Our memories will always be the Far Hills Races- the dinner party afterwards that you allowed the gang of us to crash at your home- Then in later years we would always bring you an autumnal breakfast before the races- Rest in peace and enjoy eternity with those whom you love- xo

The last of the old gang - my moms best friend and maid of honor at her wedding. Such fun times they all had together around the dinner table. I enjoyed bringing my kids to Joan and Bills pool. She will be missed but what a full life she had.

She had a great sense of humor, with a loud laugh, followed by "Oh God!" She's with Him, Uncle Bill and Kevin, et al right now.
