Dear Richard, Thanks so much for reaching out to us. I have to tell you that I've been a huge admirer of Joan's since the early 1990s when we were both at the Pine Street Inn...she is one of the most loving, fun, inspiring and caring people I've ever met! But I guess I don't have to tell you that...I am saving all of the emails I've received from her over the past few months. The way she is facing her illness is extraordinary.
