    To Joan’s Family and many friends, you all are in our thoughts and prayers. We had the honour of knowing Joan &Phil through her sister Arlene (rip).
    Joan was extraordinary woman, kind and loving to a fault. She bore her many illnesses with great unwavering faith. Her compassion to others , love of life and her pride in all her children is the stuff of legends. No doubt she is with her beloved Phil, Danny, Jenny, Arlene , Anthony and her many family and friends who have gone home before her. Rest well Joan in the arms of the All Mighty..

    With love and friendship always your friends, Cathy & Ted from Cork Ireland.
