    My Deepest sympathies for your tragic loss. May the God of all comfort, Jehovah, help you during this most difficult time. May the words found at Revelation 21:3,4 sustain the family during this time of grief.

    To Joan’s Family,

    I worked with Joan in Westport, and as a result, we have been friends for many years. I called her Aug. 16, because I wanted to take her to lunch, as we often went to lunch when I would return to CT each summer. She told me that she was waiting for her niece and going back into the hospital. That was the last time I spoke with her.

    She was, indeed, a fighter, and I am lucky to have known her.

      Hi Tyra –

      I remember Joan talking about you. She was very strong thru her 14 years with cancer and lived independently up to her death. Thanks for your friendship and support you have given to Joan.

      God Bless!
