We are all given to each other on loan

Joanne Claire Elmadjian (née Pain)
30 AUGUST 1964 - 26 MARCH 2009

it is hardly fair to sum up a
beautiful life
in a few paragraphs
to honour an
ordinary woman who
has touched us in
extraordinary ways

We are sorry for your loss, but our comfort is in knowing she rests in much better hands awaiting for our Savior's soon return. Cindy & my prayers are always with you. Jeff Stevens

Hi Ani, I wonder if you ever check this space but I was just thinking of Joanne and actually Alex and Aaron really and wondering if it had already been 6 months that Joanne had passed away. What a lovely picture of Joanne of Oct. 2008. I hope you are doing well. :)

Hi Ani,
Three years on I fondly remember Joann and how fortunate we were to be blessed by her love and her love of life.
Her photos are above my desk at the office, the china cabinet in the living room, and on my desk in the bedroom. I'm looking at her now riding a horse in the mountains of Oregon with a big grin on her face.
She was one of the most incredible people God brought into my life. I still miss her terribly but treasure the memories. Jerry Lewis
