I’m sending this note on Joanne’s behalf. She wanted all of you to know that, after a brief hospitalization for breathing issues this weekend, she came home and entered hospice.
Joanne is thankful for each of you and sends her love. She appreciates the love and support that you have provided over the past two years and two months. Her health journey has been long and arduous, and your visits, phone calls and messages have helped her along the way.
Now our beautiful friend is ready for her journey to a new world. Her caregiver Sera and hospice staff will strive to keep her comfortable during this time. While Joanne’s spirit remains strong, her physical condition is very weak. Talking can exhaust her, so please understand if she is not able to take your phone call or see you in person.
I encourage you to post a message on this site or send Joanne a text or email message, sharing a special memory or story. Joanne may not have the energy to respond, but she will love hearing from you.
With gratitude for your caring thoughts and words for Joanne,
Pat Williams (friend of Joanne for almost 40 years)
