“While it’s been difficult, I’ve been amazed by the outpouring of love and overwhelming kindness we’ve received from family, friends, and people whose lives were touched by the woman they knew as Joan — a woman we all miss so very much,” she continued.

The post has been retweeted more than 1100 times.
