I loved you Joan. When my dad married your sister Linda, you became my auntie. I always enjoyed your visits to Newfoundland, especially the time we swapped purses. I wanted that Gucci bag of yours so bad, and you traded with me for a Gloria Vanderbilt. I loved your smile, your hugs and kisses, and I loved singing country songs for you. May you soar with the angels my sweet, I will never forget you. xo

She is a Special Angel in Heaven and with her family there🙏🙏🙏😇💜

So sorry on the passing of one of my favourite people. I may not have had the opportunity to spend as much time with Aunt Joan over my lifetime due to the distance, she had such a positive impact on me each time we met. It always felt like we were never apart. I will miss those hugs!
