Getting to know your Mom here in Savannah has been a pure delight. She was always active, walking every morning & afternoon. Joan enjoyed being around others & she was very loved & respected by all of us. We will miss her so much. Prayers & hugs to her family.

Joan was a wonderful friend and my primary walking partner for a couple of decades. I have known her since 1978. She was a caring, loving person. I will miss her. I plan to attend the funeral on Monday. It is hard to believe it is almost ten years since your dad died. Hugs for all of you.
