Joni, Justin and your entire family,
We are so sorry for your loss. Although it may be a blessing for Dean to be with your mother Joni - it is hard for those left behind. May the memories give you all peace and comfort. I promise you there will be tears, but there will also be laughter as you share those memories. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
