Joan’s daughter, Sandra Sinclair, selected this poem that she felt was so appropriate to what she felt for her mom.



I just wanted to let you know I made it home.


Everything is so pretty here,

so fresh, so new.  I wish that you

could close your eyes so you

could see it too.


Please try not to be sad for me.

Try to understand.  God is taking

care of me… I’m in the shelter of

His hands.


Here there is no sadness, and no

sorrow, and no pain. Here there

is no crying, and I’ll never hurt again.


Here it is so peaceful, when all

the angels sing.  I really have to

go now….I’ve just got to

try my wings.


PS….I’ll be the first face you see when you get here!
