    I found out through FaceBook that Joan Robertson has died.  It is so sad to learn one of our own has died.  She was a dear, sweet lady.  My thoughts and prayers are with her family. RIP, Joan

      She is on my friend list at FB, and I also heard of her passing in her sleep. Sympathy to the family. Three folks on my friend list have died recently with one only in his 50s.  I wonder if the bad winter has affected health problems. May Spring come quickly.

      So sorry to hear about this. Joan was an excellent writer and a sweet person. HP was a better place because of her presence. Condolences from myself and the HP Team to her loved ones, family, and her friends here on HubPages as well.

      I'm sorry to hear that.  I was looking at her profile and she sounds like she has had an interesting and great life.  How neat we have things to read from her.  (I didn't know her.)  My heart goes out to Joan's friends and family, and prayers as well. Thank you for letting us know.

    I've just spent time reading some of Joan's hubs. What a shame I hadn't encountered Joan's work earlier. Her hubs are great! I am sharing two of them so others get a chance to appreciate her work - and learn some of her Granny Madge's tips.

    Thanks for telling us, Mary.

        I shared one. It is the best article I have ever read on the subject. I don't think I can mention it. or can I? I posted it elsewhere as a share also.

    Sending my thoughts and prayers to her family and this community.  The beauty of being a writer is that we leave our words to comfort those left behind.  May she rest in peace and continue to dazzle the angels.

    Thank you, Mary, for letting us know. I was unfamiliar with Joan's writing until now and see that she has left us many impressive pieces to read. I wish I had discovered her writing sooner. My heart goes out to her family.

    I am thinking of sending an email to her address here of condolence to her family. I would imagine a member of her family checks her email and would read it. 
    Any thoughts about that??

    It made me sad to see her response to a FaceBook post last night, that was dated Feb. 28.  It made me think of just how fast we can leave this earth.  Just reminded me to give my family an extra hug, cause I may not be here tomorrow.

      I think sending an email to Joan's address is a very lovely gesture. I will do the same, Mary. Thanks for the idea.

      I so agree with you on how quickly things can change. Giving extra hugs and more kindness to loved ones is a good thing to do.

        I wasn't sure about sending her an email through HP, but I think I'll go ahead and do that.  Hopefully, a family member will read her email.
