John and I have shared many wonderful memories with you: The marriage of your daughter Nicole and our son Eric; their loving children, each unique and special in their own way, whose eyes lit up whenever they saw you.
Gene, you were a wonderful son, putting your mother's needs above your own. We admire you.
Our sympathy Gene. Kim, and grandchildren.
Adding to that our three other grown children and spouse, we could fill a room. Which we usually did!
Joan- sharing our birthday over the years was a pleasure! Two Virgo's same day - It was meant to be!
Love You! Forever in our prayers.
Dianne & John

I never knew Joan personally, but when I lived and worked in Plainville during the 80s,I had the pleasure of meeting Joan several times at local events. You instantly saw her light upon meeting her. She was one of the most beautiful people I've ever met because of that light, and the way her smile lit up a room. I'll never forget her.
