It is with heartfelt sadness for the loss of your dearest Mother, wife and our family friend, Mrs. Shaw, that I send condolensces on behalf of the Lane family (from the Yukon).

Joy was a kind and welcoming person to our family and especially to our sister Kathy who visited their home regularly, seeing her best friend Jane through many, many years. Joy set the tone in the family for a sense of belonging which she and the whole family emanated.

Love and comfort to all of you as your hearts grieve and come to a sense of acceptance and inner peace for her life well-lived.

Love Laura Lane
