Loss of a friend Joan Peters

I will miss her as she kept us up-todate on things happening around town. She was a good neighbour and friend and I'm sorry for your loss. I will be thinking of all of you at this sad time. She wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere but her house so she got her wish as far as that's concerned. Thinking of past times for sure. Carol
