    I’m gonna miss her hugs after church service. She always had a hug for me, no matter what was going on in her life, and the last few months had been hard for her. She may have lost her fight on earth, but she fought the good fight and I know she is at peace now. She was humble about her faith, never afraid to ask questions, but she knew Jesus, and she is with him now.
    I’ll keep praying for Joan’s family, with all that they’ve been through in these last few months. God does love you all, and the rest of us do ,too.
