I'm so sorry to hear about Joan passing. I will always have memories of her and Lori after school and in the neighborhood. I will always remember her smiling face as she was always laughing and smiling about something. She will be missed by the large number of those like me that were happier for knowing her. My sympathy and prayers to her family.
