Very sorry for your loss. I was hoping to get together last year but the day never came due to COVID.

From the moment I met Joan about 32 years ago, I instantly knew she would always be in my life in many important ways. I was right. She was a most exceptional person and how fortunate I am to have known her. Smart, interesting and enlightened only begins to describe her. K and I will miss our lunches, our talks and her company with all our hearts. We want to express our deepest sympathies to her family at this sad time.

Joan was a dear friend of my sister Jill. I had the pleasure of meeting her several times. It took less than a minute to see what a wonderful special person she was. She left a lasting impression on my whole family. My condolences on the loss of this very special treasure.
