    I’m so sorry. Joan was my best friend since I met her and son Matt on flight from Rome to USA and she spent herself to help me on custom travel.

    I will always remember his willingness and his happiness to help others. Always engaged in a thousand activities despite its many health problems. Joan will miss a lot to my family.
