The memory of the righteous is a blessing.

(Proverbs 10:7)

 Joan Marie
has gone to God
and left a beautiful memory

The memory of
a deep devotion to Christ,
the memory of
a warm love
for family and friends,
the memory of
a remarkable openness
to life,
to music,
to painting,
to neighbors;
to the world as
God made it
and man embellishes it.
Such was
the life of
Joan Marie,
such is the memory
that is bequeathed
those of us
who are left behind.

Let us
hold on to that memory
with gratitude,
with affection and
with very great pride.
