    To the Joncas family. We are extremely sorry for the loss of your mom. She was an incredible woman with a wonderful heart. Unfortunately, time itself is the only healer during these times. Hopefully, we’ll all meet again. We’re sending lots of prayers & love your way. She would be proud that you all gave her such a beautiful sending-off.
