“Joanne left behind two beautiful children whom I love dearly and they love me unconditionally. The laughter and joy they had when they were with their mother; the love she gave to her children, hugs, laughter, crying, hugging and kissing was as expected of a loving parent. Love is a feeling that should not be tampered with, and I have so much love that I can give them.”
From dad Shane
