May he make his face to shine on you and be gracious to you. May he lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.

  • We send our condolences to the Post family. Joan was such a delight during the short time we had the opportunity to share time with her! Another bell rings in heaven! I know you feel blessed to have had her with you the last few years and she blessed many people’s lives she touched!

  • Dear Laurie, Cristie, and Michael,
    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your beautiful Mom.
    We were bestie cousins as little kids in LA We had many fun and happy times together from first grade to college.
    Joanie would pick me up at the train station in LA in her white cadillac convertible and we would drive through the Hollywood hills with the top down. She knew everything about music, art, opera, dance, and all the real movie star gossip. And of course there was the Flamenco.
    She was like a wonderful generous loving big sister to me. I will never forget her. I know how very proud she was of all of you. I loved her very much. I am very sad. With much love, Jeannie

  • Laurie, my sincere condolences on the loss of your Mom. I will keep your family in prayer. May our Father give you peace and strength, and may you each be comforted by wonderful memories.

  • I had the pleasure of working with Joan. She was the cutest and funniest woman. She loved her nice clothes and her hair, nails and lashes to ALWAYS be on point! She always shared her hard work as a mother and attending school. Joan would always say there’s never an excuse why one can’t continue with their dreams “You just got to want bad enough” is what she’d say. She was truly an inspiration to me, and blessing to her patients. Heaven has received another angel.

    My condolences and prayers to the family during this difficult time.
