Yesterday, Friday October 5th, 2012, was a day we shall always remember.
It was the day that Joanne John, our dear colleague and friend died!
Death came so suddenly that none was prepared!
All were shocked and frozen in disbelief!
However, it is not what happens to us that matters; it is how we respond to what happens to us that matter!
What are the possible options that we can learn from this tragedy to inform how we can respond?
What values do we take away from this devastating emotional experience?
Joanne was an original member of the Mediserv Family; being one of the first to be employed by the company.
She was a Foundtion Member of the KREW.
What will always be appreciated and remembered is the warm relationships she kept with others.
Warmth, peacefullness and friendliness are some of the words that will always be associated in our memory with Joanne.
These are values that we should take away from this experience and share them liberally with each other.
We shall overcome.
Joanne was not just my colleague she was also a dear friend. My heart hurts in ways that I cannot describe. Her passing was both tragic and painful.
She was a person full of life and will forever be edged in my memory as the same.
It is hard to lose a loved one, and believe you me she was loved.
My thoughts and prayers go out to her family at this time.
The sun has set upon a beautiful soul, we needed her, but God needed her more.
His will be done!
R.I.P. Joanne John
