The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

So sorry to read of Joan’s death. We were neighbours on West Street many years ago and remember many fun times my parents and I had with Jim,Joan and family. I am sure you have lots of great memories to help you through this difficult time.

I was saddened to learn of your loss. My heartfelt condolences to the family. I have many fond memories of my first summer job at the Lazy farmer in the '70's. I couldn't have had a better boss. I carry my love of antiques and collectibles from that time. My brother and I developed a friendship with Andy. Hi Andy!!!

I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. Mom and I always enjoyed our visits to the Lazy Farmer. Joan would always greet us with a smile, and Mom and Joan would visit while I would poke around in the barn!

Bill and I are so sorry for your loss. We have so many memories of Aunt Joan. I can still remember her helping me choose the best surprise packages at the Lazy Farmer when I was a little kid. ❤️ Bill & Elaine Battle
