Joan always had a smile on her face. I don't remember a time when she was sad. So positive and fun. She was happy and fun to be around. She had a significant partner who adored her and was by her side until the end. Steve was also humorous and appeared to be a good match with Joan. Her boys, Jason and Josh were kind and loved their mother. Joan will be sorely missed, but her memories of that smile and those big brown eyes will be permanently imbetted in my mind. I love you Joan and I will miss you.. Chris Thompson Berenberg
