    • How can I ever replace such a dear and caring friend. Joan and I had so many fun times together. We laughed everyday at work even in the worst situations. Joan always listened to me and we never had a harsh word in over 40 years as friends. I will miss her everyday. My sympathy goes to Dick who was the center of Joan’s world. Also to Dee Dee , David and the whole family. I will see you again someday, my dear friend. With love, Diane Peterson
