    With deep love and affection for my godmother and cousin Joan — I will always treasure our years growing up in the Bronx and the caring love you had for, and brought to, every friend and member of the family. You were unique in your kindness and exceptional in your thoughtfulness for others. Being with you in your travels was always an exciting adventure for me as a youngster. You made life interesting and exhilarating. You will always be in my heart, and my memory of you will be that of an independent, caring and loving person who brought a certain kind of enthusiasm to life’s events. Rest in peace my cousin and godmother. Love, Linda
