This stone was decaying badly at our visit in 2004. It has since been replaced by her sister Mary Jane.
Joan was a sister to our Grandmother who passed so early in her life. We feel those who are here for such a short time are on the other side watching over our daily lives. We are truly blessed to have someone watching over us.

This photo was take June 28, 2004. John Hilton is my Great Great Grandfather. His resting place, as well as other family members,  is on the side of a steep hill in Sunset Memorial Park. This trip was taken with my Grandmother and  two of her sisters; one who had just gone through a few major surgeries the previous year. The steepness of the hill made it extremely difficult for me to visit. I can only imagine that Grandma and my Great Aunts found it challenging to maneuver.
