Bill, I was saddened to read we lost Joan. I enjoyed knowing her all these years going back to UNC Faculty Dames, and I've had the pleasure
of running into her from time to time at various places. Most recently, I recall seeing her (and you) at the Greeley Senior Center. Joan
was most entertaining with her stories and could always leave you smiling......and that's putting it mildly. Joan and her wonderful personality
will be missed by many. Your photo presentations with Joan were memorable and so well done. I'm sorry for your loss.

Bill and Dean: Reva joins me in sending our thoughts to you at this moment. It has been a long journey of association - from the campus connection to the high school connections of the kids to the living association at Beau Chateau and even the parallels of our retirements. Our thoughts are with you both at this time and will be with you whether where you live or particularly when Dick sees Dean at UNC games. Our friendship has been a good part of our lives and we share your sadness now.
Reva and Dick Bond

I’m very sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences. Grief can be so hard especially the first year and though it may seem like death is the final state of things God’s word offers the hope of seeing those lost in death again during the promised resurrection. Christ spoke of this resurrection which means a standing back up, a restoration to life. At John 5:28,29 and John 6:40 he says in part “do not marvel at this there is going to be a resurrection...I will resurrect him on the last day”. So be assured you can be reunited with your loved one at a time when all things are made new. A time of true peace and security! You can read this at Psalms 37:10,11,29 and Revelation 21:4,5. There are many more heartwarming scriptures that give comfort and hope. For more please visit jw.org
