Don and I were both saddened to read this morning of Joan’s death.
We did not know her well but I remember her as a peppy lady whose presence brought joy to her fellow aquaaerobicers in morning sessions in the pool at the Guilderland Y. And we enjoyed talking with her at various Caregivers events. She was an upbeat lady who brought pleasure to those around her. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

Sorry to hear of Joan’s passing. I fondly remember the years we worked together at Professional Medical Conduct. She was a wonderful employee and I thought the world of her.
