My heart goes out to Steve, Joan's adored children Heather and Steven, her sisters and brother and her grandchildren. And to every person whose lives were touched by this little dynamo. We have all lost a ray of sunshine in our lives, but one that will shine in our memories for ever. I will always remember Joan's brilliant smile, and the glint of mischievousness in her beautiful blue eyes. Her sense of humour (sometimes dark humour) was a gift that had me laughing in the best of times, and in the worst of times. Thank you Joan. I know Joan will be watching over her loved ones from heaven or the universe. You will feel her there for you. I truly believe that. Love, Mary Lynne (Moore/Pryor) Hooey
