To Joan's family,
So sorry to hear of Joan's passing. Joan was one of the best parts of walking into church, I loved to listen to her play and I also had the pleasure of getting to know her when I sang in the choir. She always made you feel better after having spent time with her. Her kind words and big heart will always have a special place in my heart.
