I think it's fair for me to express love and sympathy for Joanie and those who loved her.  I see a mutual friend from time to time that was very close to her - and the loss is tough to discuss.  I knew Joan for so many years and we shared a lot of buddies in the Catholic School circuit.  I'd run into her in the darndest places - and it was always a fine time to see her and have some good-hearted laughs.  CS
