    To John and family. I was saddened to hear that Joan is no longer with you all. My thoughts return to your lives in Guelph, her parents and mine, and such wonderful stories Hilda and Sam would tell me and my parents, Rhoda and Paul Kennedy and of my brother Ross. My best love to you all. I returned to Guelph from Owen Sound, and often think of Mitchell St. and Clive Avenue. And Aunt Ruth. Joan was a very special older friend and I admired her greatly. Love, Rosemary Kennedy

    To John and Family

    There are no words that truly ease your pain
    of realising that Joan is no longer with us –
    it just hurts too much.
    If caring thoughts can help you just a little,
    they are with you right now.

    We will miss her smile and joking about the latest news…

    Monika and Bernd
