I’m so sorry to read of Joan’s death. Joan was my cousin Janice Clifford Collins, friend and we all worked together at N.E. Tel. and Tel. In Worcester. She and I both moved to Cape Cod and would see each other periodically. She was such a nice person and I know she will be missed, but she’s happy to be back with Jim. R. I. P.
