  6. Farewell Joan. The last few years were very tough, but you were very lucky to have had 52 years with a man who I know absolutely adored you.
    Not many women are lucky enough to be able to enjoy such a staunch and loyal partner. You had some great times together since riding in that big old Packard on your wedding day…. and many great adventures since, but unfortunately all good things must pass.
    Condolences to Bill who is going through his toughest time ever, but I’m sure will be as strong for you now as he has been through other tough times.
    Your daughters and grandkids are very lucky to have had you both for guidance in many ways, and I’m sure you will continue to watch over them all.
