We wanted to share our condolences with Joan’s family. It is never easy to have to say goodbye to a loved one. The pain of loss can be unbearable. Our Creator promises us that one day this pain will be just a memory. That beautiful promise can be found at Revelation 21:3, 4. Our pain and suffering will be a thing of the past, and we can cry tears of joy as we welcome back the ones that we love so much. We hope you find comfort in those promises.

Sorry to hear of Joan’s passing. She was an incredibly strong and independent woman who loved her family dearly. She was tough when she needed to be but was there for anyone who needed her. She will be missed.
