  2. It goes without saying how much Joan meant to all of us. I know for sure her best friend of many years, Betty Fontana is rejoicing with the heavens that she finally gets to spend intimate time with Joan. My deepest sympathies to all of you on her passing but I know she has found peace and is at the feet of Christ. Thankful for her and Al, always. Blessings to you all.
