To Danny, and the entire family of Joan I want to express my sincere sadness upon learning of Joan's passing. I am a longtime dear friend of Joan. We graduated together from Memorial High in West New York in the year of 1952.. We remained close friends after we both married. Visits to each others homes with my husband, Frankie were frequent and as our children grew to be grown ups, Joan and Danny , Frankie and I went out dining to many different restaurants. We also traveled to Mexico and Bermuda on two cruises. I will treasure all the wonderful times and fun we had together. My husband Frankie passé away in 1916. I only ask to please stay in touch and keep the wonderful memories our hearts. I will send a donation to the library.
