    Default Letter from Ray, Joan's Husband, to share with Forum Friends

    After we learned about Joan's death, I mailed a sympathy card to her husband Ray. I received a letter from him today with permission to share on the Forum:

    "Sorry for taking so long to write you. I also apologize for not contacting the Quilt Forum members. I know the members of the Forum are like family to Joan. I misplaced Joan's login information, but will try to setup an account to notify the other members.

    "Joan's 1st operation was Aug., 2017. Oct-Dec. she had 33 radiation treatments and chemo. Jan., 2018 cancer returned. April 2018 second operation. She had 5 radiation treatments and stopped the treatments, the side effects were too great. Dec. 2018 tested for an abscess found more cancer. Pet Scan shewed 5 locations in her neck and throat. She passed away Feb. 22.

    "You are welcome to pass along any information. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers, they are appreciated. And thank you for being a friend to Joan. Ray Johnson."

    I know many prayers were prayed for Joan while she was undergoing her surgeries & treatments. I appreciated Ray writing back with this update & wanted to share it. Joy

    Thank you for posting this, Joy. It sounds like Joan had an extremely hard time during her treatment time. It was nice of her husband to send you response.

    I don't remember her Forum user name. Maybe someone else will.

    Joan’s screen name was “stationarymom”. She was a kind forum member. I remember when she first posted about her having cancer. My heart goes out to her family.

    So sad that we lost our forum friend Joan, she and her family went through so much pain and suffering. I sent her family a Mass card and prayed that she's finally Resting in Peace.
