To Cooke and Corey, Losing someone who has a special place in your heart, especially a parent, is always difficult. It leaves a gap in your life. Remember to fill that gap with all the wonderful memories you have. My sincere condolences to all of Joan's family. She was a wonderful neighbor in Huntsville for many years. Our mother Dorothy was very fond of Joan. I will always remember Joan as a very kind and sweet person. She will be missed. Joyce Robinson
