I am so very sorry to hear about this. My thoughts are with Uncle Reg and he entire family in this difficult time. I can only hope that if there is a better place that Aunt Joan is there and no longer suffering. She will be missed but never ever forgotten.

Thoughts and prayers are with you Reg and find some peace in knowing Joan us with Janet again. She will always be loved and missed by so many. To Joan’s family, you have lost a very special person who has touched so many people and whose lives have been blessed by knowing Joan.

Our thoughts are with your family and friends at this time. Although we didn’t personally know Mrs. Tucker, we still have a special place in our hearts for her. Through the many stories told by neighbours Tom and Cheyenne Hollett, and from Tess Griffiths, we know that Mrs. Tucker was a gem! You are very lucky to have such a special lady in your family. She will be missed by Cheyenne so very much.
