  • Dear Jeff:

    Joyce and I wish to extend our deepest sympathy to you on your loss of Joanne. While working in Stamford I got to know her well as she was part of our breakfast group. A few months back my daughter told me Joanne was in her restaurant and introduced herself which nice to hear. In spite of her Diabetes Joanne always maintained a good sense of humor and I always admired her for that. Jeff, take care of yourself and we will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. With deep sympathy, Art Harney
