Sending our love and prayers to each of you.  Joani often talked of angels and felt God's presence throughout life's ups and downs.  She was one of the most compassionate loving souls, pressing on with a determined spirit.   She always found a way to be creative and blessed many with her hand made treasures.  Above all, she was a Giver. We will all miss her giving a hug, giving a hand, a laugh, a wink, a smile. Her life has been an inspiration and we are thankful to have been blessed by being loved by her.  With Love,  The Collards
