    So sorry to hear that Joan has passed away. She was a lovely person. I will always remember bringing the boys to visit her on Halloween She would be delighted by their costumes and patiently look at all their candy with them as they spread it out in the Sullivan’s living room. Our many visits to your home with Joan are fondly remembered. I’m so grateful that Taylor and I got to visit Joan and take her homemade gingerbread men cookies before Christmas. Thinking of you Jim, Greg and Diane
