On the family tree Joan would be a cousin but in my heart she was Aunt June. There are fond memories of visits from the family back to Winnipeg. After Uncle Don passed away Aunt June would visit to 10 Weaver Bay where she had her own bedroom. I often visited her in Edmonton and could not leave without a game of cards. I sure will miss you. Love you Aunt June.
