    To say my Aunt Joan was the kindest person is an understatement. In all my 74 years I have never seen her without a smile or have a cross word about anyone. She was so gentle and kind. All of my uncles are gone now, and my Aunt Joan is the last of my Aunts. No doubt there is a very special seating for her in heaven. You will be missed here but you will be among so many who loved you. Rest In Peace, Love Your Niece, Ceil

    Aunt Joan was the sweetest and most mild-mannered person I knew. Always happy and always welcoming to all. She is now reunited with her husband, my Godfather. I prayed to my mom and asked her to greet Aunt Joan with open arms and to guide her in her final resting place. Rest peacefully Aunt Joan. Lots of love, Carolyn, Vinny, Antonio and Danielle
