Thoughts & Well Wishes

And one from Gwendolyn-Jane Romeril:

Dear Joan,
I remember what a mentor you were for us women wanting to be priests and the exquisite stole you made for my ordination. I know that you made many vestments in all the churches you served. I think of you now as I repair all the vestments at Trinity Church Bethlehem PA. Remember when we were companions at Allentown State Hospital when we were in CPE together? And the many times you brought the sacrament to me when I was sick. Some of my favorite books came from you. And you said, “Don’t preach more than 10-15 minutes. And if you don’t get them in the first 5 minutes, you won’t get them.” How right you were about that and many other things. I love you. May God give you an easy crossing. Remember that you are a feather on the breath of God. -love, Gwennie

This is a note from a Twila Evans:
Dear Joan,
Wishing you the very very best. Hold fast and close to you those good good memories. Our love to you especially and also to Eleanor. Remembering now the special good times we had when you and Bob were working on the Hood presentation of Job. Such good times we had- with food & wine. Much love, Twi

I keep thinking of all the amusing times we had - apart from the Island Adventure and Tree Toppling.  So many evenings with you and Chip and good food and excellent wine and talk (but not about politics!).  Driving into 815 with you was always a hair-raising experience.  I was too terrified to drive in New York, but you were death-defying.  I seem to remember your giving the finger to an aggressive taxi-driver .... Surely not, a woman of the cloth.  I must be dreaming.  I won't tell your children and grandchildren if you don't.

Hi, Auntie Joan!  Thinking of you all and sending all best wishes.  I so hope the antibiotics are working well!  Lux (left) and Colter (right) want to say "hi," too, but they're annoyed that I'm uploading a photo of them in their bathrobes after a walk in the snow.  They worry what Cromartie will think about their dogliness.  Alison and Eleanor, this is a wonderful site, and I hope you're taking good care, too.  Lots of love, Meg

Dear Joanie,

Best wishes for a fast recovery from Chicago! Glad to hear that you've left the hospital and moved to a nursing home which I expect is a much more comfortable environment, perhaps with new friendships to be made among the residents. As far as rehab, don't forget the maxim "no pain, no gain." Personally, I feel like I need rehab after every ice hockey game (seriously I have to do special hip/knee exercises). BTW, will you be watching your Washington Capitals tomorrow night playing game 7 against the Bolts? It's been a fantastic series and the winner goes to the Stanley Cup final. Apparently Neil has been yelling at the TV so much that he's thrown their various cats and dogs into a panic (isn't that right Neil?).  Love from Jonathan, Susanne, Elliot (taking finals in NH), and Jeremy
