Joanie, I will miss you terribly. (Tears as I write this )..The first hummingbird I see I will name her Joanie. I will look over at your gardens and think of you as we shared flowers. Watching birds was also fun. I took some great birds pictures at your house. I won't forget the time we took a walk towards dusk and you were walking me home. You said thats an awful big Cat, ( IT WAS A BIG SKUNK). Last time when I was there with Olive we were sitting on the porch and Olive jumped right up into your lap to snuggle. She will miss you and your treats also. I also thank you for helping me paint through the years. I had fun with your Mother when you went to florida and she stayed at your house. I ALWAYS enjoyed eating cookies at your house! Yes, I WILL visit with Richard.(hopefully he will give me cookies)!!! Tommy and Julie also send their regards.

Please accept my condolences for the passing of Joan. There is hope though, as the Almighty has arranged for the resurrection in the future. He promises, "... There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." (Acts 24:15) I hope you find these few words comforting and provide motivation to prepare for the new world of God's making. (John 17:3)

I am so sorry for your loss. Please take comfort in the words found at Psalms 94:19. “When anxieties overwhelmed me, you [God] comforted and soothed me.”

Your friends, the Calvo family
