Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the loss of your beloved mother/grandmother. I knew Joan over the years as a physical therapy patient of mine. She was always the quintisential picture of elegance and so very classy! More than that she so loved her family. Never a day passed that she wasn’t keeping me up to date with Bond’s accomplishments in the Academy, and the younger grandkids out of state. It was such an honor to know Joan. May her enduring memory be a blessing to all of us. Fondly, Audrey (sobel family medicine)
