    There are no words… Only silence. Then suddenly I hear you tell a joke and then I think of Dix Street and how you always let me eat sugary cereal when I spent the night as a kid. I think about your red furniture and the matador picture and how cool I thought you were. And you were. You were and always will be the coolest, funniest most loving Aunt and Godmother a girl could have. How blessed our family is to have had you in our lives. You won’t be will forever be cherished. For now Auntie Joan ….. I’ll see you one day.

    Joanie, I miss everything about you already! I can hear your voice and your laugh while I’m writing this… your passing is going to leave the biggest hole in so many lives and the ONLY comfort I get out of this sadness is that you are now with Mikie and all that have gone before you including my mom who loved you so much. You 2 were wild and crazy! I love you joanie and you will always be one of my favorite relatives ♥️♥️♥️
