Joan and I spent many years together working in animal rescue. I would go out with her to investigate complaints and examine animals. Her heart was always with taking care of her dogs over the years. The dog in the photo is Snow White. Her nose and face is swollen due to a snakebite out on Joan's place. I will remember Joan for her hard work and compassion for the animals.

I am Joan's cousim. I just found about her death today. We were very close as children born just three months apart. We had kept in touch thru the years and I always ad!mired the work she did with animals. I will miss her funny cheerful letters. May God keep you close forever, Joan Mary Therese Tessmer
