My deepest condolences to all of Joan's family. I was shocked to hear of Joan's passing. Although I haven't seen Joan in years, I have many fond & fun memories of her, from the '80s & '90s, in both a social and professional manner. Joan had a great sense of humor & was so passionate about her work! It is never easy to lose someone you love....I hope your whole family may be comforted by the wonderful memories you have of Joan. My thoughts & prayers are with you at this difficult time.
