To all the Montvilles,
Aunt Joanie was one of the BEST! You were all so lucky to have her in your life and she, you! I know she was always so thrilled to spend time with you and watch you all grow up... ahhhh the sense of humor; she had that as well!!! I know you are all sad, I am too..... Yet remember ALL of the good times and there were many. How blessed was she to have you all there for her....... AND she was so deserving.... I have to think, Loretta showed her the way and gave her a sense of peace and I can hear Joan laughing and see her smile at seeing Jimmy again... Delighted I am sure!!! It is how I remember her. She was a spry, special lady. Keep her in your heart until you meet again... Love you, you are all such a special part of my life...My heart breaks for your loss, Aunt Joan, RIP
