I was sorry to read of Joan's passing. She was such a sweet lady with a wonderful family. I knew Joan through work. I enjoyed our chats whenever she would come into the doctor's office. When the doctor she was seeing retired, she had to go to a different practice but I always thought of her. She was beautiful inside and out. Rest in peace, Joan. My condolences to Gerry and Lynn and the rest of her family.
