    The Robinson family is so sorry for your loss. We were lucky to have met Joan at the Brentwood Care Centre, as she was our mother’s (Garda’s) roommate for a short stint. She was a lovely lady, and we will miss her. Our thoughts are you with you and Edwin at this time.

    To the Singbeil family. My heart goes out to you. Joan and I had many good times, especially during skating season!
    I have been trying to get her on the number she gave me and couldn’t so I am very thankful Ed called me tonight.
    We did have some good visits over coffee while my husband had his eyes tested! She always had lots of pictures for me to look at of her family especially grandkids.
