Grandma Joan
Your time has come to be in the arms of our lord and savior Jesus Christ. I have tears of sorrow, but tears of joy knowing that we will see you again. I know that you will be our guardian angel while we are here on earth, and that you will be watching over us. I will always remember the time we spent together as a family and all the great memories that you created, like game night, cookie day, teaching all of us how to bake your apple pie and homemade pie crust-YUM-, spending weekends with you at your CA home, swimming in the big pool, shoe shopping at Cinderellas, vacations to Jeannie and Al's, and so many more great memories that I cherish. You are loved, you are missed. We will never forget you.
