Don't think of it as losing someone, think of it as gaining an angel. She was truly a precious angel brightening up our day with her presence. Never thought something would happen to such an innocent young person full of love and hope. Deeply saddened by the tragedy, we pray that God will lift her up in His hand so with Him she will live eternal life of joy. A wonderful person who touched so many lives will be remembered even though gone, she’ll forever remain in our hearts.
Dearly loved by her parents, her grandparents, godparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. Joanna was a student at Sir John A. MacDonald and an active member of church organizations.
