Carol, I was your neighbor on Valley Ave and was Joanie’s age... I remember your curly dark hair... cute little sister ... and how nice your parents were. We moved to Stratford when I was 10 years old. I was at St. Margaret’s Shrine at a carnival when my children were young and saw Joan’s name in memorium by a tree and wrote to your mom as I was saddened and wanted to reach out. I had been to your home in Trumbull once for a visit after your family moved but then lost touch. I was so happy to receive a letter from your mom with pictures of Joan and her husband and she explained what Joan had gone through with her husband visiting her daily. I will never forget my first friend ever, Joan nor you and your parents ... wonderful memories. I always remember how your dad could fix a TV!!! I just saw their obituaries in the CT Post... they left this earth Together on Valentine’s Day. Such a lovely couple together until the very end. They are now in Heaven with Joan. You and your family have my deepest sympathy and prayers. Love, Carolynl

Carol & Frank, We are truly sad to hear of the passing of Mr. Percy and Mrs. Doris. We had the pleasure of meeting them while my father (William Hunter Sr.) lived at the Oaks of Pooler. We would join them for dinner often or just sit and chat. Mrs.Doris always had a beautiful smile and Mr. Percy had a great sense of humor. And boy could he sing. Such a delightful couple.
