Thanks to all of you for sharing your Mom & Sister with us at Chancellor Gardens. What a beautiful lady & example to each of us. She spoke very few words but you could always tell how she felt through her eyes & facial expressions. I will miss her sweet personality. What a wonderful example you all are to me of caring and love for a mom, friend & sister. Take good care, know you are in my thoughts & prayers at this very difficult time. Sincerely, Sallie Huntington

Aunt Joan! Such great memories of BBQs in the summer at your house and your fish pond huge with gold fish! The memories of sitting on your Patio with everyone as I grew up are memories I will cherish forever! Your love for animals as you took in every stray, spayed or neutered them and took them into your home! Our dogs lived when you came to visit almost as much as I did! You were my only Aunt and nobody could ever compare in kindness! Your huge heart showed in your smile and the soft sweet voice you have! So happy I was your niece! You are the picture of a beautiful caring woman! So blessed you were part of my life!
