Joan was one of my mom's best friends and a lover of life! She took a great interest in me and my career as I progressed as a woman in business, and always gave me great advice. She was my first role model as a career woman. I know she is celebrating with her sister Mary Faith, and my parents and her mom in heaven! XOXO

Joan was my godmother and my mother's best friend. She has been an amazing blessing to me and our family. She always had wonderful stories to share and we had many special times at Greenwood ... her home in Vermont. Hopefully now she and my mom (and all of the Bronx group)are together and having a wonderful time as they did here for many years! We will miss your smile Joan..xoxo
