Carol and Family,So very sad to hear you lost your dear, sweet mom/grandmother. Joan was such an elegant woman. I always enjoyed chatting with her when you lived in Chesterton. She was patient and kind, and truly had a beautiful character that is rare to find these days. I had no idea she was such an accomplished woman! Now I better understand why her daughters are so similarly talented, smart, and beautiful! N With deepest sympathy from my family to yours , Brenda Hurst Chesterton, Indiana
