Gram-- I speak to you every night before I go to sleep. I ask you how you are and if you will come to me in my dreams. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you. Those times when you laughed now make me laugh. Thank you for those times. Mom would have made you proud (even though you wouldn't have told her) making your favorite meal. It was so good. You are loved, you are so missed. We all wish you could have sat at the table and shared those crab cakes and gravy fries with us. Happy birthday in heaven Gram.

I miss and love you so much great grandma. We celebrated today for your birthday and I couldn’t miss you more. If only I could talk to you today and tell you how much I miss you and eat crab cakes with you.

Miss our talks when the family would get together. How things have changed since you, my parents and my father in law are gone now.
I miss all of that. I know you are looking down on everyone. You would be so proud of your great grandchildren and what they have accomplished.
Posted by JoAnne Lee on October 19, 2016
Mom , I miss you so much and I love you so very much ... I am alone now without you not a single family member cared enough to acknowledge me and the pain I am feeling on this day .... This is tough I wish you were still here to talk too. None of my children or grandchildren cared enough to say anything to me today, Its a whole world of people only pretending to care about one another ,when the truth happens no one really cares ... I have been there and done so much for my family and you used to tell me that I did too much you were right ... Jack misses you and says he loves you ! I love you and I hurt so much missing you .....

Grandma Joan, little Brianna is now 12 years old! Can you believe it?! How she thrived with your giggles and smiles and love from a baby through 5 years old. And then you kept in touch with sweet cards! I hate that we moved away from the area. But we are joyful we still get to keep tabs on your loved ones. We hope you are smiling down on us am in heaven! Sending up hugs to you!

Miss you mom and happy I always took care of you ......I have realized that raising children is not a guarantee that anyone will be around as you age . So I am trying to teach myself to be satisfied with my own company . It is hard ... I love you and although I did not say it often enough I was always there for you and would give anything to still be there for you . June

I think of you often Joanne and the many laughs we had around Jackie's table. I will never forget the day you came to pick me up after I was in a car accident during rush hour at Taylor and Jefferson. That was the type of person you were always willing to help people in time of need. Love you.

We were having a party at our house and she brought along an elderly gentleman friend. He blended in with our family and seemed to have a really good time. A short time after, he passed away. I later thanked her for bringing him. It added to our celebration.
