    Ted and Kelly,

    So sorry to hear of your loss. I unfortunately never had the chance to meet your Mom…but when you know her children you feel like you know her. She must have been a remarkable women based on what I have experienced in my life with her son. Losing someone you love is the hardest thing we have to go to in life…but always remember this you are never alone. Your great memories of them live on every day in your life and your friends and family love you and cherish you and are here to make more memories.

    Love you both very much.

    Wong and Goon Families:
    My condolences for your loss. Joan was a beautiful woman with a lovely personality.
    She was always telling funny stories and reminiscing about the past. Whenever I was in Minnesota we would take the time to share a delicious meal and go for a walk afterwards. Joan love a good meal and long walks. She also loved to volunteer and support various charities. But most of all, she loved her grandchildren and baking cookies. She will truly be missed but I have many fond memories of her and our times together.

    Ted, Kelly & family,
    We were so sorry to hear about Joan’s passing. She was such a wonderful person with a big heart, warm smile, and very infectious personality. We have fond memories of spending time with Joan when we were in Minnesota. She always made us feel part of the family and had such a caring, loving manner. We will remember with great fondness the Easter hunt in Joan’s backyard, Thanksgiving dinners at the Goons, and of course, Joan’s delicious cookies.
    You and your family are in our thoughts. Hoping you find some comfort in all the wonderful memories you shared.
