Joan’s words to her family and friends:
“When I come to the end of the road,
And the sun has set for me,
I want no tears or gloom-filled room …
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little – but not too long,
And not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love we always shared,
Miss me, but let me go.”
