    On behalf of my mother Janet, and my children, I am remembering my wonderful Aunt with fondness. She and Roger always opened their home to us and the fun we had as children playing with our cousins is imprinted upon my brain. Though distance kept us apart for so many years, the family ties have always kept our love for Joan close. Our deepest sympathy on her passing.
