My sincere condolences to all of Joan's family. I had the pleasure of working with Joan and Sandy for many years at St. Joes. She was an excellent nurse and wonderful colleague. At the same time I was working with Thelma at the Health Unit and later with Pat at the Friends. Kit was my exceptional nursing student in the late 80"s so I have always felt close to the Moore's. You are such a close and loving family. May you find peace in the coming days ahead.
