Tammy, Mike & Family,

You are in my thoughts & prayers. My heart is heavy for you all and for us. Joan was a great friend! She was special! She was the kind of friend who would do anything for anybody. Regardless how unpleasant or difficult it might be. She was there. Even after we moved from Quincy, I knew if we really needed help, she would do her best to help us. We will miss her.

Wilma & Bruce
