I just found out about Joan’s death and passing to new life. What a loss for us. I will miss her, already do. She had such an inquisitive and insightful mind and such a loving heart. She suffered much in life, along with our loving Saviour, Jesus Christ. I pray, Joan, that you are in the loving arms of the resurrected Jesus. Bob Pine, May 13, 2020 You are finally at peace resting in the arms of the Lord. Please watch over us until we join you. Amen
