In loving memory of Joan Ann Halfpenny who sadly passed away on 7th September 2018.
Sadly, Joan passed away after a short fight against Cancer. It was diagnosed after the discovery of a malignant Melanoma on her leg. Subsequent investigation discovered that it had already spread to her groin (which necessitated surgery to remove lymph nodes) and further to her liver and eventually her brain in the form of Metastasis. She put up the bravest of fights and passed away in the most painless and dignified of fashions. Of course, as she was such a care-free, healthy and happy lady, this came to everyone as a complete shock and the rate at which she was consumed by the illness was breathtakingly quick.
She passed away in Maidstone Hospital, where for the final three weeks of her life, she was looked after impeccably well. Our thanks go out to all of the front-line staff who helped to make the whole ordeal more bearable for everybody concerned. She will be missed terribly by Alan and all of her friends and family.
